To support the Foundation to find the cause and hopefully a treatment for all individuals affected by this disease.

AHC is a rare neurological disorder in which repeated, transient attacks of hemiplegia occur, affecting one side of the body or the other, or both sides of the body. The hemiplegia ranges from simple numbness in an extremity to full loss of feeling and movement. The attacks may last for minutes, hours or even days and may alternate from one side of the body to another.
Children with AHC have exhibited a wide range of symptoms in addition to AHC. These include tonic attacks (lack of muscle tone), dystonic posturing (stiffening of extremities), nystagmus and other oculomotor abnormalities (eye disorders), developmental delays and seizures.
