My brother is diagnosed AHC. The most important problem is awareness. There are a lot of disorders waiting to be cured but this one isn't known by people. We should inform the society for diagnosing and curing the disease. Nothing is impossible. Poissiblities are boundaires in our minds. We can cure it. It's just a matter of information.

My daughter Lisa is 13 and has AHC and I am on the fundraising committee. The foundation does great work in striving to help find a treatment and cure to help all the children affected with AHC. The foundation has also set up support groups and is always looking for ways to help the children and families affected with AHC. Please help support the foundation by either donating or spreading the word about the foundation and the disease which affects our children.

I am a parent and a volunteer on the fundraising committee. My daughter Lisa is 13 years old and was diagnosed at 2 years old after a year of seeing many doctors. And through the the foundation they are constantly updating parents and doctors on progress and research projects going on. We are constantly trying to raise money for much needed research and raise awareness so those in the medical industry are aware of this horrible disorder which affects only 300 known cases in the USA and app 800 world wide. I am so grateful for the foundation and there efforts to find a cure and I have the confidence some day in the near future a cure will be found.

I am the current president of the AHCF and I have been involved for over 20 years. My daughter was diagnosed in 1991 at 10 months before there was a foundation. It was another year before I spoke to a parent who understood. The foundation provides a wealth of knowledge through it’s website, literature and conferences. The foundation supports families worldwide, assists in connecting families with other families and physicians in their area, raises awareness, and raises funds for research. I will continue to work with AHCF until there is a treatment and ultimately a cure for AHC.

My niece has AHC. I flew to San Francisco (from Boise, Idaho) to help w/ AHC Annual Convention in June 2012. Any help/volunteering/donating of funds is ALWAYS greatly appreciated as this is a very rare condition.
