The WWOX Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to promoting community awareness of WWOX related syndromes and supporting scientific research that aims to develop effective treatments and ultimately cure the syndromes.
The WWOX Foundation was formed by a group of parents with children affected by the devastating syndromes associated with WWOX deficiency.
WWOX is the name of a gene located on chromosome 16. It is responsible for critical brain functions.
A recessive mutation of the WWOX gene can be carried by parents and passed to their children for generations.
Help us fund a lifesaving gene therapy treatment to cure WWOX related diseases.
Your generous donation will support ground breaking laboratory research and create a pathway towards a clinical trial.
