In 2019 at age 15 months Michael was diagnosed with an ultra rare condition called SPG50 disease caused by a single gene AP4M1. Doctors explained that there was no cure, nor any treatment options for this rare neurological degenerative disorder which would slowly take away Michaels cognitive and physical abilities similar to Cerebral Palsy but progressive.
His Parents Terry & Georgia are unwilling to accept this prognosis, and are hoping to fund gene therapy to cure or at least stop the progression of this terrible disease not just for Michael but all children affected.
This would not be possible if not for the amazing and courageous work being done by the families affected by SPG47 (Another disease within the AP-4 gene complex). Through the great partnership between CureSPG47 and CureSPG50 we are hoping to one day cure all 4x versions of the AP-4 gene defect and offer hope and support to all families affected.
Room to Read
We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world.
To achieve this goal, we focus on two areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact: literacy and gender equality in education. We work in collaboration with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the life skills they’ll need to succeed in school and beyond.
