Be a Superhero!

Polio, cured — most everywhere.

Measles, yellow fever, whopping cough, smallpox, tetanus — the same.

Is Fragile X Syndrome next?

Depends on you. Your gift to FRAXA will help us deliver on our sole mission to find a cure for fragile X through groundbreaking research as well as to improve the lives of those with Autism, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and many other disorders.

Giving to FRAXA makes it possible to

• continue promising breakthrough research, some now in late phase trials;

• support FRAXA-funded researchers in developing the critical seed research concepts private drug companies and government agencies will not fund; and

• offer fresh and real hope for advanced treatments and a better tomorrow!

Show how much you care. Show you support FRAXA researchers worldwide, who are in their labs right now testing, seeking, exploring, discovering — all thanks to your generous support. Show you are deeply committed to funding translational research — $25 million plus worldwide since our inception in 1994, yielding discoveries that are changing the lives of families coping with fragile X. Make the smartest fragile X investment. We’re one of the world’s most efficient charities, where management and general expenses are under 5 percent and a whopping 86 cents of every dollar is invested in research to find a cure for fragile X.

Why wait for a miracle? Be a Superhero. Give at FRAXA.org today.
