At Alström Angels we are passionate about helping children with disabilities. We strive to make an impact on medical research advancements, family support offerings, and awareness for rare and orphan diseases.
The Alström Angels Mission: Alström Angels is a non-profit charity dedicated to raising funds for Alström Syndrome genetic and medical research, increasing awareness of the rare disease amongst the general public and medical communities, and bettering family support for those affected by the Syndrome.
Although Alström Syndrome itself is extremely rare, the medical complications it causes are not:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Dilated Cardiomyopathy
- Congestive Heart Failure
- Liver & Kidney Failure
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
A medical advancement in just one area of Alström Syndrome can literally help millions of children and adults suffering from these illnesses. Through the advancement of Alström Syndrome research we can broaden our scope beyond the select population of Alström patients and help the general public, and ultimately the world.
