There is Hope

Understanding how the absence of the WAC protein causes DESSH is an important step on the road toward therapeutic discoveries. Developing treatments will have a lasting impact on those affected. 


We currently support efforts to understand the effects of WAC gene mutations, including collecting biodata and natural history data from DESSH patients. We appreciate all the help you can provide.
