Action For A-T

Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T) is a rare, genetic, life-limiting condition. Children with A-T reach their physical peak around the age of 5 and due to a weakened immune system, have an increased risk of developing cancer and respiratory disorders. Action for A-T fund medical research in a quest to find a cure or therapies for this life-limiting childhood condition.

Lilly's Story

Lilly's Story

Lilly was diagnosed with A-T aged 4 after her parents noticed she was a lot more unsteady on her feet than other children her age. Now aged 9, she finds it difficult to talk, suffers from extreme fatigue and relies on a wheelchair for mobility.

Hope

Hope

We have a vision of a future where the effects of A-T are minimised. We passionately believe that with increased funding and continued global and collaborative effort, effective treatments for A-T will be developed and the lives of those affected will be changed.
