Help Us Give Them a Reason to Smile.

The smiles on the faces of individuals with Angelman syndrome (AS) belie a life marked by severe developmental delay, speech difficulties, seizure disorders and more. And yet, they go on smiling. That’s just one reason the Angelman Syndrome Foundation seeks to advance the awareness, understanding and treatment of AS, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.

Made up of families, caregivers and medical professionals who care about those with Angelman syndrome, the Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to support individuals with AS, their families and others who care. With your help, we can all give them a reason to smile.
