ABOUT US & OUR MISSION

The FamilieSCN2A Foundation is an organization created by parents of children diagnosed with Epilepsy and Autism as a result of a change in the SCN2A gene.

Our vision is to find effective treatments and a cure for SCN2A disorders.

Our mission is to improve the lives of those affected by SCN2A disorder through clinical research, effective treatments, public awareness, early detection, patient advocacy, and family support.

We are a registered 501(c)(3)organization run entirely by parent volunteers.

To accomplish our vision and mission, we will:

  • Coordinate and collaborate with the global scientific community to understand the function of the SCN2A gene in order to develop effective treatments and a cure for SCN2A disorders
  • Increase medical community and public awareness of the complexity and potential severity of SCN2A disorders
  • Provide educational and emotional support for those affected by SCN2A disorders
  • Raise money to fund our goals

PUTTING SCN2A ON THE MAP

As the parent of a child with an SCN2A mutation, we ask that you please put yourself and your child "on the map" by reaching out and letting us know you exist (even anonymously, if you prefer). It is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR CHILD, and it is the only way we will ever be able to advocate for new SCN2A treatments and therapies.

Our goal is to find a cure!

Did you or your child just receive a new diagnosis of SCN2A? If so, please know you are not alone!
