Goal: $750,000 • To Date: $157,844
We know it goes without saying, but a lot has changed this year. Among all of the changes, one thing has remained constant: our dedication to the mission of finding effective treatments and ultimately a cure for Fragile X. Even with the world on pause, because of you we kept moving forward – forward to find a cure and also to connect and collaborate in entirely new ways.
When the world shut down, we stepped up - together
- Because of your long-term support , three Fragile X research centers – all of which have been heavily funded by FRAXA – gained $25 million in NIH funding for the next five years.
- Because of your desire to learn, FRAXA launched an innovative virtual seminar series to connect our researchers with the community and enable them to share unpublished discoveries.
- Because of your endurance, we connected families from across the US and beyond through online social events.
- And because of your enthusiasm, 67 landmarks were illuminated in FRAXA teal across the globe to raise awareness for Fragile X, and in 2021 there will be many, many more!
Because of you, we kept moving forward in a year that has felt like a standstill
Without your support, FRAXA cannot fund groundbreaking research. We cannot span the globe to collaborate with companies like Healx in the United Kingdom and Shionogi in Japan.
Over the years, we have built a remarkable platform for developing a cure. From gene therapy to brain organoids to drug repurposing, you have been with us every step of the way. Despite daunting challenges, we have discovered powerful new ways of working towards a cure.
By making a gift to FRAXA, you can accelerate this progress now more than ever before.
