Action for A-T

What is A-T?

A-T is short for Ataxia-Telangiectasia which is a rare, neurodegenerative and progressive condition that starts in early childhood causing severe disability and premature death. There is currently no cure for it and nothing that can halt its progression. Babies are born ‘normal’ and then slowly, from around the age of 5, start to lose their independence. A wheelchair is needed usually by the age of ten, if not before, and in many cases, a feeding tube by the age of 12.

The immune systems of children who suffer from A-T are usually compromised and so they often do not live beyond their teens, usually dying of either cancer or a severe respiratory infection.

A-T has been described as having the worst symptoms of four diseases: cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis and cancer. Studies show that children who are affected by this debilitating disease do not lose any of their mental capacity and so over time they effectively become severely restricted by their deteriorating body.

What is Action for AT?

Action for A-T is a charity that was set up by two parents following their daughter being diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T). Their mission is simple: To speed up the process of identifying a cure for A-T or treatments that delay or prevent the disabling effects of this childhood condition.

What will the money be used for?

The money raised by Action for A-T will be used to research A-T with the specific aim of finding a cure or a treatment that will delay the disabling effects of it. Since January 2012 Action for A-T has raised a substantial sum of money.
