Every day, approximately one child is born in the United States with Prader-Willi Syndrome. Though considered a rare disorder, it is the most common genetic cause of life-threatening obesity. The insatiable appetite children and adults with PWS feel is disruptive and dangerous, to the point where they cannot live independent lives . Currently there is no cure for Prader-Willi Syndrome. By funding research and support services we will help discover solutions, find treatments, and give our families the tools we desperately need!
