At the end of June we held our Annual General Meeting (AGM) to discuss the third year at The Cure & Action for Tay-Sachs (CATS) Foundation. At the AGM it gave us the opportunity to celebrate our highlights, the work we have undertaken and to answer any questions our supporters had. Some of the issues which were discussed included:
- The progress into the research and a potential treatment for Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease
- Our fundraising success â we raised over Â£70, 000 in our third year
- The first ever scientific meeting for Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff diseases in the UK planned for 2015
- An overview of the events held for the charity and those planned for the future
Due to most of our member families being unable to travel long distances with their children affected by Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease, we decided to hold the AGM online. This enabled everyone to participate from the comfort of their own home whilst also being able to ask any questions through the online webinar system which was used.
