DHX30 Gene Related Disorders

We are parents and caregivers of children and adults that have been diagnosed with a very rare and new condition caused by a mutation in our loved ones' DHX30 gene. 

This causes a plethora of challenging symptoms including low muscle tone, inability to speak, and inappropriate pain responses.

Our loved ones typically do not walk.  We will not be able to hear their thoughts and feelings.  They will require forever care. 

Our goal is to raise funds to obtain the following for our community:
1. 501c3 status
2. Annual meetups to provide support and collaborate on research efforts
3. Fund research so that those coming after us will not face all of the struggles our loved ones do.
4. Have funds available to help those within our small community if a medical need arises that cannot be provided by other services.
