ALL donations are 100% tax deductible and go straight to the Cure GM1 Foundation.  No funds will be used by our family towards Clara’s care.

Donations will allow the Cure GM1 Foundation to fund the necessary expenses to support a lifesaving human trial, such as vaccine manufacturing, FDA required vaccine toxicity testing, and a full time nurse to help manage the trial.  This is not just an opportunity to save the lives of these children but to be a part of something bigger than all of us, medical history.  Once funded, a successful trial could mean treatment of GM1 as well as applying similar treatment to other storage diseases that currently have no cure and in turn save many more lives.


If you would like to donate in honor of/in memory of someone, a printable certificate can be found here:


Checks may also be mailed directly to the Cure GM1 Foundation.  Please make checks payable to the Cure GM1 Foundation (Memo line: A Cure for Clara).
