Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood Campaign

When you support the Step Up to 4 AHC campaign, you are helping children with AHC fight a severe and debilitating disease called Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood. All of your efforts will directly affect the future of every person living with AHC. No matter how big or small your contribution, you can help fund research that is trying to stop the unpredictable attacks of paralyzing hemiplegia from occurring.

Your financial support of this year’s campaign will go to four crucial research projects. Together, these projects will eventually help create a permanent gene therapy treatment that will hopefully end AHC forever. The Step Up 4 AHC Campaign will bring cutting edge scientific researchers together from Northwestern, Vanderbilt and others to help end painful attacks that can last for minutes, hours or even days.

Joining us in supporting the Step Up 4 AHC Campaign can help ensure that a safe and transformative therapy option, shown successful in other rare diseases, can be brought to the AHC community as soon as possible. But, until these treatments are ready, your contributions will also help develop tools to improve the quality of life of all AHC patients.

Sharing your support of the Step Up 4 AHC Campaign is incredibly important to AHC patients. By sharing this message with your FRIENDS, FAMILY and COLLEAGUES, you are helping kids with AHC have hope that treatments are on the way. Through your generosity we can all come together to take the steps needed to END AHC!
