Why You Should Support Team Tommy



"All of us are born, and all of us die." There are no guarantees what day your last breath on earth will occur, but there's no getting out of it. Quite often in the west, we consider death taboo, yet when you consider it, Steve Jobs said it best. His quote of "I am grateful for death, it motivates me to finish what my dreams are," is a reminder that each and every one of us is mortal. No matter how much money or power you have, along with hopes and dreams, they will one day end.

The autism spectrum is confusing, as so many families across the world, want a definitive scientific answer rather than a clinical one. Angelman Syndrome is on the autism spectrum, and it is the only one, that can be literally diagnosed via a blood test. Its called Fish,and it can decipher the partial deletion of chromosome 15. This could eventually lead to other autism related diagnoses via a non human method, which is what a lot of parents seek at this time. Right now the Angelman Syndrome Foundation((ASF) and Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics(FAST) are conducting more research into this, along with ultimately discovering a cure for this confounding disorder.

Angelman Syndrome is named after Dr. Harry Angelman, who noticed some similarities of cases in the 1960's. If you don't believe in medical love, listen to the man's voice on recordings, and you will hear it. He was passionate about "angels" in his life, and although he is gone, his legacy continues on with the research of doctors such as Weber and Philpot. That's just the tip of the iceberg, as more scientists and medical professionals are studying this quandry, and have already given mice Angelman Syndrome and cured it.

FAST and the ASF are both highly rated, and led by exemplary people, along with thousands of parents who volunteer a lot of time and effort to these causes. Every bit helps, and if you donate to them, or through this page, your money is going to a great cause that will help. Its too late for a cure for my boy, and other angels, but its not too late for others. No more angels deserve to die young, nor do their families need to go through a suffering, of which is so brutal that words can't describe it.

I hope with all of my heart you will help spread the word, and if possible donate to these groups, or help Team Tommy at http://www.gofundme.com/iy51xo. There's no giving up, because while each of us has a clock of activity, its best to use each second and minute to the best of its ability. Let's support the angels, their families, and people across the world whom want the ability for a blood test. It might sound trivial to those who are not directly affected, but I can tell you from direct experience as can many, that knowing what you are dealing with is a relief all by itself. It might not be the answer you are looking for, but once you understand what you are up against, it makes things a bit easier and allows you to help a little girl or boy a lot more effectively.
