The A-T Children’s Project is partnering with The Global Genes Project (GGP) keeping with their theme of “hope. it’s in our genes.” While we are using materials developed by the GGP, 100% of all proceeds go straight into the pockets of the A-T Children’s Project.
We might be small in numbers, but together we’re strong. DID YOU KNOW: There are currently just over 7,000 rare diseases identified, affecting 30 million people in the US alone. Approximately 75% of those affected are children, making this disease category one of the most deadly and debilitating for our country’s children.
