from Paula

Paula Evans founded FAST in 2008 after doctors told her there was no hope for her daughter who has AS. Today, Paula has inspired more than two dozen scientists from multiple universities and pharmaceutical companies to work on a focused path to a cure.


childrenOn behalf of the entire FAST family, I want to extend a warm welcome to you. Thank you for visiting our website.

When we set out to cure an “incurable” genetic disorder, we knew we would need three things: a comprehensive plan, a dedicated and passionate community, and money to make it happen.

We are in the final stages of bringing effective therapeutics to the clinic. We would not be at this point today if it were not for our unbelievably supportive community. The majority of research funds spent to date have come largely from our Angelman syndrome parents and those who support us.

As diverse as our Angelman community is, we are all united in one goal: a better future for our children. FAST is committed to bringing life-changing treatments to clinical trial within two years, but we need your help. We are asking everyone to join us in the Cure Angelman Now initiative because, together, we CAN. Our time is now, and every single dollar counts in getting us closer to our goal. Create your own CAN fundraising page here, and be part of this thrilling adventure. Let your family, friends and colleagues know how close we are to curing Angelman syndrome. With their help, we will make our greatest dream a reality.

Fundraise for FAST, and help us cross the finish line. We are so close!
