Foundation for Angelman Syndrome:
FAST is an all-volunteer organization of families and professionals dedicated to finding a cure for Angelman Syndrome and related disorders through the funding of an aggressive research agenda, education, and advocacy. The Foundation is committed to assisting individuals living with Angelman Syndrome to realize their full potential and quality of life. Our goal is to bring practical treatment into current medical practice as quickly as possible. It is our hope that grants we fund will lead to additional research support from government agencies, other funding sources and organizations around the globe. FAST is served by two boards; the Board of Directors and the Scientific Advisory Board. Together, we are working hard to bring practical treatment into current medical practice as quickly as possible.

Gold for Kids- Tulsa
The organization raises funds and awareness for our local cancer kids by hosting runs, fundraisers, etc. and in turn donates 100% back to St. Francis Oncology for family assistance and research, so it all stays local. They are funding the newly added Family Psychologists who works with the children and parents, even after they are out of St. Francis care, like she meets with me regularly because of our grief and my own PTSD from everything. Their fundraising has also provided a full-time Physicians Assistant to help the families. The Gold 4 Kids also collaborates with the medical staff, who have their own group, in fundraising and reaching out to the families as well. They are entirely 100% volunteer so no paid staff or expenses go out to anything but helping the kids and families struggling with cancer.
