On January 18, 2012 scientists discovered that there was a mutation in the gene ATP1A3 that causes Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood.
To honor this day, the international AHC community has decided to name January 18th the International AHC day. AHC Day is a time to celebrate this first goal we have attained and look ahead to the future work that we can accomplish together because we share a common vision to help those patients who suffer from AHC and their families who care for them.
Today we announce the NEW AHC International Alliance and our new website AHCIA
On this day we also honor all the AHC sufferers that have passed away and pledge to continue the fight for cure.
