Jennifer Eisenberg's Fundraiser:

Courtney's Campaign for Kleefstra Syndrome Research

THE STORY:

GeneSpark.org is an international non-profit foundation that was founded to fund scientific research projects aimed at reversing intellectual disability, with a specific focus on Kleefstra Syndrome. The GeneSpark.org team traveled the world to meet several research teams focused on Kleefstra Syndrome and the reversal of intellectual disability. What the team learned is that much scientific progress has in fact been made with regards to understanding KS, but no one historically focused on developing a drug treatment primarily due to a lack of available funding. Through the assistance of their world-class Scientific Advisory Board, GeneSpark.org identified three distinct/high impact projects aimed at screening potential drug treatments for treating/reversing KS and embarked on a mission to raise money to get these projects funded. Last year this event included people all around the world and raised more than $125,000 for new drug research! Even more excitingly, the research supported by last year's Walk & Roll identified a "hit" on a drug that showed significant promise in improving KS patient brain cells.   Please support me as I work with GeneSpark.org towards making a difference for our daughter, Courtney, who was recently diagnosed with Kleefstra Syndrome.   Here are 3 easy and simple ways to give your support today:
