Welcome to the
Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood Foundation's
AHC is a neurological disorder that results in attacks of paralysis usually affecting one side of the body (hemiplegia), or the entire body. These attacks can last for minutes and often last several days (even weeks) There is no known cure for AHC.
In January 2012, the first gene that is a cause of AHC was discovered. Continued research to find other genes is ongoing. Next steps are trials for treatment.
Join us in raising awareness and much needed funding for research to help find a treatment and ultimately a cure for AHC!
The Online Auciton is open until Saturday, November 16th until 9:00PM PDT
