Please Help Support Research For The Mathew Forbes Romer Foundation

Parents pass down their traits, good and bad, the obvious (such as eye color) and the not so obvious (like the chance to inherit a genetic and possibly fatal disease) to their children.

Genetic Diseases affect a child's brain, the command center, and the whole body. The last great medical challenge is finding effective ways to get treatments through the body's natural defenses called the Blood-Brain Barrier. By donating, research can be done in order to find and create these treatments for those unfortunate children affected.

These diseases affect children of all faiths, colors, creeds, and economic status. In high-risk groups, as many as 1 in 2,500 births are affected, while 1 in 25 people can carry the defective gene.

The Mathew Forbes Romer Foundation establishes and expands alliances with universities, hospital and physician networks, and biotechnology companies to make an impact.

1. Getting tested right away can confirm if your future children are at risk of inheriting genetic diseases of the brain, such as Tay-Sachs

2. Tay-Sachs along with many other horrible genetic disease need to be cured

3. The Mathew Forbes Romer Foundation can help these fighting Children who are suffering from these illnesses.
