Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
Ataxia-telangiectasia, or A-T, is a rare genetic disorder that attacks children, causing progressive loss of muscle control, immune system problems, and a high rate of cancer.A-T worsens with time causing sufferers to be confined to a wheelchair by approximately age 10 and needing assistance with all aspects of daily living. The life expectancy of an A-T sufferer is in the teenage years.As A-T is such a rare disease (approximately 40 diagnosed children in Australia), families feel very isolated and alone. Our goal is to change this for families and let them know they are not alone and someone is fighting for their childrens future. BrAshA-T is the only charity in Australia supporting A-T patients and their families and our primary objectives are:Research: fund medical research into the causes, prevention and treatment of A-TAwareness: engage in activities to raise community awareness of A-TSupport: provide emotional support and limited financial assistance for sufferers of A-TFundraising: engage in fundraising activities to make it possible to fulfil Our MissionBrAshA-T was established in 2007 and is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee which has been endorsed by the ATO as a DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient).
