Ataxia –Telangiectasia (“A-T”) is a degenerative brain condition that causes many of the same disabling effects as ALS/Motor Neurone's disease only it affects young children. On top of the severe physical disabilities, the condition also attacks their immune system. 1 in 3 children with A-T will develop cancer and many will die from lung disease. More than half will die before they are out of their teens. There is currently no cure and nothing that can slow the condition's progression for these children. Action for A-T is finding hope for children with A-T by funding high quality medical research.
