Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood is an orphan disease.
Orphan disease is a disease which has not been „adopted“ by the pharmaceutical industry because it provides little financial incentive for the private sector to make and market new medications to treat or prevent it.
The AHC community is on a verge of a breakthrough to find a cure for the AHC patients but desperately needs funding for the ongoing research.
On 29th of February a campaign was lunched to find 1 million persons to give 1 US dollar (or more) in support of the AHC foundation.
