About ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T)
A-T is a progressive, degenerative disease that affects a startling
variety of body systems. Children with A-T appear normal at birth, but the
early signs of the disease usually appear during the second year of life.
A-T causes the relentless loss of muscle control, usually making children
dependent on wheelchairs by age 10 and making it difficult for them to
read, speak and eat. Children with A-T also have a strikingly high risk of
cancer. Although considered a rare "orphan" disease, A-T may actually be
much more common than we know, since many children with A-T, particularly
those who die at a young age, are never properly diagnosed. There currently
is no cure for A-T and no way to slow the progression of the disease.
