Most people fortunately do not know what Giant Axonal Neuropathy (GAN) is. For members of our community who support the Hannah’s Hope Fund, they know that this is a recessively inherited condition that results in progressive nerve death. TBC is among the community members who want to help combat this condition while helping a local girl.
GAN appears in early childhood and progresses slowly as it becomes more severe. Hannah’s Hope Fund for GAN has a mission to raise funds to support the development of treatments and a cure for this disease, and to be a resource for doctors, scientists, and families world-wide.
For the last few years, TBC has been proud to support Hannah’s Hope Fund by attending the Celebration of Hope. This year’s event takes place tonight at the Glen Sanders Mansion. If you’re there, stop by our table to say hello!
