2014 was a very successful year for The Cure & Action for Tay-Sachs (CATS) Foundation as we became firmly established as one of the leading charities for Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease through our support services we offer families. You can read about our highlights for 2014 in our last newsletter here.

£105, 000 raised in 2014
We are also very proud to say that the charity was able to raise over £105, 000 in 2014 and this is something we would not have been able to do without the fantastic fundraising events held by you and our supporters. We would like to say a big thank you for this and if you would like to hold an event in 2015 then please get in touch with us here.

Daniel is the father of a little girl called Amelie who was diagnosed with Tay-Sachs in March 2011 when she was 15 months old. After slowly coming to terms with what the future held, Daniel, his wife Patricia and their friends started THE CATS FOUNDATION to raise awareness of the disease and to provide fund raising opportunities so that a potential treatment can be found.
