Ataxia –Telangiectasia (“A-T”) is a degenerative brain condition only affects young children. Children are born normal but peak physically by the age of 5 before slowly losing their physical abilities including the ability to walk, talk and even to feed themselves. Mentally they remain unaffected and so they effectively become trapped in a deteriorating body.

On top of the severe physical disabilities children with A-T must face, the condition also attacks their immune system. 1 in 3 children with A-T will develop cancer and many will die from lung disease. More than half will die before they are out of their teens and there is currently no cure and nothing that can slow the condition's progression.

You can find out more about the charity by watching this short film made with our Ambassador Jonny Wilkinson, http://player.vimeo.com/video/49473404 and by visiting our website, http://www.actionforAT.org.
