Quinn’s Cocoa $4 the Cure

Quinn and Emma

February 2021

My name is Quinn Pruitt and I am 11 years old. Since 2017, I have been raising money to find a cure for my twin sister Emma who has Angelman syndrome and all the other angels.

My cocoa stand will be virtual in 2021. Join me in holding a cocoa stand in honor of someone with AS this February. 

Together we can find a cure for AS while spreading kindness!

  1. DONATE NOW to buy a virtual cup of cocoa.

All support goes directly towards therapeutics and helping other families through the Angelman Syndrome Foundation.

Quinn's hot cocoa fundraising for 2020 was over $200,000

  • 1997 – The cause of Angelman syndrome, a missing or improperly functioning UBE3A gene on Chromosome 15, is discovered
  • 2007 – Angelman syndrome is cured in lab mice
  • October 2012 – Emma diagnosed with Angelman syndrome and THERE ARE NO COMPANIES WITH DRUGS / THERAPEUTICS FOR AS 
  • 2017 – First Angelman syndrome therapeutic enters clinical testing on adolescents
  • Today, there are more than 21 drug companies (from start-ups to established) focused on delivering a therapeutic / cure for Angelman syndrome. Scientists believe that a cure for Angelman syndrome will lead to significant breakthroughs for more well-known disorders like Autism, ALS and Parkinson’s.
