Goldie's Angels

Meet Goldie

Goldie Digby, daughter and third child to Simon and Cristina Digby, is one of 40 children in Australia diagnosed with A-T. Ataxia telangiectasia (A-T) is a rare and incurable disease often described as the worst parts of cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis. Throw in a dose of cancer and lung disease and you have a general picture of this relentless condition.

Expected Outcomes

Your funding will be collected to support the A-T Clinical Trial. The trial aims, at the very least, to slow down the progression of A-T until a cure is found. The most significant expected outcome of this trial is to prevent cells from dying, particularly in the cerebellum, which in turn will slow down the neurodegenerative decline in our A-T kids.

If we look at Goldie's prognosis as an example, the usual course of A-T sees kids confined to a wheelchair by the age of 8 or 10, giving us 6 to 8 years to spare Goldie from this fate. If this trial is successful, we may slow the progression to the point where kids avoid the wheelchair until their teens, giving us over a decade to find a cure for Goldie.

Science is moving at an extraordinary pace, but A-T moves quicker. Any time we can delay the progression is invaluable to our children's future health outcomes.
