There is no organization doing more independently towards researching a cure for Fragile-X Syndrome than FRAXA. Knowing that 96% of my donations go directly towards research is amazing. more

FRAXA continues to be the one and only organization I see moving the ball towards a cure for Fragile X Syndrome. Please join FRAXA in their quest for a cure!

FRAXA has been on the forefront of research to find a cure for Fragile X for over a decade at this point. The organization's dedication to funding the most promising research and focus on what is likely to yield results near term has brought a cure within reach. In addition, FRAXA has been very careful with donors' funds, spending very little on ongoing operations and passing on the vast majority of the donations to funding research.

I've personally been involved with FRAXA for nearly 10 years, with the last 4 as a Board Member. Having seen both the internal and external workings of this organization, I can whole-heartedly say that FRAXA put nearly every penny of donations to work to find treatments and a cure for Fragile X. The staff is committed to the cause and the donors are acutely aware that their funds are put to excellent use.

The Great!

FRAXA is the hope for all those affected with Fragile X and their families. The organization is singularly focused on funding research to cure Fragile X. It is very efficient in terms of using donor funds in putting it towards research--a cut above most other organizations funding medial research. The organization is able to sollicit excellent research proposals from research community and has a spectacular record in funding most promising avenues towards a cure. It is examplary in its collaboration with parents and families of those affected by Fragile X, researchers and the scientific community, pharma companies. FRAXA is the hope--and promise--of a Fragile X cure.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Minocycline has been the first breakthrough for Fragile X that was a result of FRAXA fudning. In addition, the research FRAXA sponsored has now brought us to two drugs being in late Phase II/Phase III trials--with a hope of a disease-modifying drug on the market in 2012.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fund it more--it would speed the race to the cure for Fragile X.
