ALTERNATING HEMIPLEGIA OF CHILDHOOD FOUNDATION INC
October 31, 2012

I'm the Medical Liaison and Coordinator for AHCF. i started volunteering for the Foundation in 2003. At the time there were limited resources and information for the families and professionals. We have grown into an active and focused Foundation and have made a concerted effort to raise money to move research forward and recently have found the first gene responsible for the disorder. This affects 70% of the patients, so we are even more determined to find the remaining genes and also research treatments for those affected. At the same time we have increased AHC awareness and education of families, professionals and the public through our website, conferences, literature and outreach efforts. I'm proud to be part of such a passionate and supportive organization.
