Research donation 2013

Dan Lewi with the cheque

We were delighted to make the annual donation from The CATS Foundation to the team leading the research for a potential treatment for Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease in June 2013.

After a very successful year of fundraising and everyone’s generosity we are pleased to announce that the donation we made was a huge £35, 000! This money goes directly to the team in Cambridge led by Professor Cox who are doing great work in helping families affected by these disease.

We would like to thank everyone who has donated to the charity, raised awareness of the diseases, held an event for us and generally just supported our goal of fighting Tay-Sachs. Without every single one of you it would not have been possible to make such a large contribution to the research team.

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.
