The CURE GM1 FOUNDATION mission is to fund research for the benefit of all those who suffer from GM1 gangliosidosis. There are no paid employees and there are extremely minimal overhead costs. This nonprofit organization was founded by parents of children who suffer from GM1 who seek to save the lives of all those who suffer from this wretched condition.
The Cure GM1 Foundation is dedicated to directly funding research for a cure for GM1 gangliosidosis – a lysosomal storage disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord, and is always fatal in children. GM1 is a progressive and degenerative condition with an extremely broad and debilitating array of symptoms and complications.
With the generous support of GM1 families, those affected by GM1, and the support of the world, we believe a cure can be found.
We must contribute in any way possible to bring these treatments forward. Every second that goes by, the world could be closer to an end to GM1 and an end to conditions like it, and innocent children who have the incredible misfortune of receiving disease-causing genes can finally have a chance at life.
