Capitola, CA (PRWEB) December 02, 2011
In support of finding a cure for Angelman Syndrome, Falafel Software has made a charitable contribution of $2,500 to the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST). This contribution will aid the organization in producing it's major annual fundraising event, the FAST Gala. This year's event will take place on December 3rd in Chicago.
Angelman Syndrome (AS) is a severe neurological disorder characterized by profound developmental delays, problems with motor coordination (ataxia) and balance, and epilepsy. The all volunteer staff at FAST dedicate their time and expertise towards finding a cure by funding aggressive research, education and advocacy. FAST funded research has indicated that a treatment for Angelman Syndrome is not only possible, but probable.
"Angelman Syndrome research appears to be on the verge of a breakthrough," said Mike Dugan, Falafel's Director of Marketing. "The disorder has been cured in the mouse model, but funding remains as the major hurdle to producing a cure for humans. This is why we are so eager to be a part of FAST's fund raising and awareness efforts. There is a real chance to cure Angelman Syndrome today."
The Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST) is an organization of families and professionals dedicated to finding a cure for Angelman Syndrome (AS) and related disorders through the funding of an aggressive research agenda, education, and advocacy. The Foundation is committed to assisting individuals living with Angelman Syndrome to realize their full potential and quality of life. We are confident that our goals are now within reach and together, with your help, we will change lives. You are our driving force so please donate generously and bring us one step closer to realizing our mission. To learn more, visit http://www.cureangelman.org.
