Discovered In 1965 by Dr. Harry Angelman, a physician at Warrington General Hospital published a study that first described children with characteristics of Angelman syndrome.
Dr. Angelman first observed three children who were unrelated but showed similar symptoms of intellectual delay, stiff, jerky gait, lack of speech, seizures, motor disorders and a happy demeanour.
Individuals with AS will require life-long care, but will live long, happy lives.
The foundation has been setup not to support Max but as a way for the trustees and Max to give back to the Angelman and wider community.
To donate to the foundation please contact the trustees.Donate
