Mae was born Amanda Marie on May 9, 2002. She was an extremely happy child with bright eyes and an infectious open mouthed smile. Her arrival brought so much joy to our family.
When developmental milestones were delayed my mother’s heart knew something was not quite right, but my pediatrician encouraged me to not compare her to her older brother and not to worry. Eventually there was no denying that motor skills and speech were alarmingly absent and a search for answers brought us to a diagnosis of Angelman Syndrome.
Angelman, by definition, is a genetic disorder that mainly affects the nervous system.
For now, there is no cure, but the Angelman Syndrome Foundation www.angelman.org is a beautiful organization that raises awareness and treatment through education and information, research, and support for families with Angels. Since it’s beginning ASF has been on a quest to a cure for AS. And we are getting closer every day!
There are two ways you can JOIN US and Be the Cure for AS.
Buy a cross from Mae’s Paw Paw. He happens to be one of her favorite people. A portion of each purchase goes directly to ASF.
Or you can donate directly at angelman.org/make-an-impact/asf-cure-club/.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.
