Prepare for take-off! Join us for a high-flying evening with fantastic dinner, spirited live & silent auction and an abundance of good cheer!
Everyone needs a HERO!
Exciting news! Have you been thinking about acquiring a PEMF device for your practice? Now is your chance to do so and be a hero for CD5LK research at the same time.
Keep an eye out for the NANO HERO PRO unit that will be offered during the Live Auction at Toast to a Cure, courtesy of Magnus Magnetica!
Now on its 11th edition, Toast to a Cure is an annual event that raises funds for the International Foundation for CDKL5 Research (IFCR), a charitable organization with an all-volunteer staff (parents of affected children) that has been the forefront of expanding the research efforts surrounding CDKL5 Deficiency while helping affected individuals and their families to thrive.
Toast to a Cure raises a glass to the dream of a future where a cure is available, and to the incredible, resilient children and families affected by CDKL5.
CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder (CDD) is a seizure disorder which affects how the brain cells connect. It is named after the gene involved and is the result of a random alteration in the gene prior to birth. The seizures are difficult to control and most of the children affected have significant motor and cognitive delays, gastrointestinal problems and vision issues.
It will take all of us to help move CDKL5 research forward, so we hope you'll join us this year and toast to a cure with us! Donations are accepted both electronically and via mail; no gift is too small, and every contribution helps fund ground-breaking research to create treatments and a cure for CDKL5 Deficiency that could change the future for so many families.
THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts.
The "Why" Behind "Toast"
Toast to a Cure is a fundraiser organized every year in Lexington, KY, by Dr. Martha and Paul Boyles in honor of their sweet daughter, Elsah, and her special friends who are also affected by CDKL5 Disorder.
