My name is Quinn Pruitt and I am 12 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.

I invite any siblings or friends of someone with AS, to join me in holding a cocoa stand in honor of someone with AS. 

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