Raising a child is expensive but raising a child with special medical needs is VERY expensive and we would like to help.

The FamilieSCN2A Foundation sets aside a limited amount of funds each year to offer small grants to patients with SCN2A Disorders for necessary medical equipment, therapy devices, and educational aids associated with these conditions that are not covered through private insurance or other assistance programs.

This program is open to all patients worldwide who meet the program requirements. The program closes each year on December 1st or once funds are depleted for that session. Any remaining funds are rolled over, with the program opening each year on International SCN2A Awareness Day, February 24.

FamilieSCN2A Foundation COVID-19 Financial Relief Grant

The FamilieSCN2A Foundation recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic is causing financial hardship for many families around the globe. Supporting the global SCN2A community is the Foundation's mission so we have worked with our professional advisors to create a new emergency program: FamilieSCN2A Foundation COVID-19 Financial Relief Grant. Whether you are suffering from lost wages, need extra money to stock up on supplies for the quarantine or are having to pay for a caregiver due to school closings, you are not alone and we are here to help.

These grants are prioritized for families demonstrating high needs, however all applications will be considered by the review committee on a weekly basis. You will be notified of the decision within 2 weeks of submitting your application.

The grants will be up to $500 USD. International families will receive an American Express Check to ensure you can cash it immediately with no issues.

Round 1 will open on Friday, March 20, 2020 and closed on Monday, April 20, 2020. Based on financial resources, and the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation will potentially be opening additional rounds of funding.

Show Me Your Genes is dedicated to raising awareness and funding for genetic testing and research, with a goal to accelerate proper diagnosis and effective life style plans for special needs families.

Show Me Your Genes was founded to make the process of diagnosing special needs children less stressful for families.

Our goal is to raise awareness about how important genetic testing and the Whole Exome Sequencing test is to receive a proper diagnosis. We will raise money to provide funds to families for the genetic testing when insurance will not cover the test. Our goal is to eventually have the insurance companies pay for this testing for special needs children. In addition we will also provide grants to other qualifying non profits who are in need of funding for research in genes associated with special needs children, teens and adults.

If you or a loved one has a rare and genetically undiagnosed childhood-onset condition, join a patient-driven research study to discover the genes underlying your family's rare disease.

More than half of the genes underlying rare disease remain undiscovered. Donating your data enables us to learn more about the genetic variants that make families like yours unique.

Join the research community. The Rare Genomes Project is supported by The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, in partnership with patients and advocates like you. When you share your genetic data and your story, we can use next-generation sequencing to learn more about the genetic causes of ultra-rare diseases.
