Be Counted

As a community of parents, those living with DESSH, and their siblings, friends, and caregivers, we are uniquely bound together by a common thread. We are strengthened by our mutual experiences and the shared pursuit of solutions to the challenges inherent in WAC gene-related disorders.

Attend the DESSH Clinic

The DESSH Foundation held its first DESSH clinic in conjunction with Dr. Marwan Shinawi in 2022. The goal of the clinic is to advance research efforts toward a cure for DESSH and provide an in-person meeting for those affected. 


Keep Active with Events

We host awareness and fundraising events for DESSH multiple times per year like the Dash for DESSH, Songs for DESSH, and Rare Disease Day. Stay updated with upcoming events to support our cause.
