What is MEF2C Association?

The MEF2C Association was created on April 27, 2016 in Castellon de la Plana by the only two families with this syndrome that are so far known in Spain  and who, by chance,  are both from the Valencian Autonomous Region, the Celia’s parents from Castellon and the Guillem parents from Valencia. Shortly after, on June 10 the same year, a Belgian family, the Lisa parents, decided to join this encouraging project.

The goal of the Association is to raise awareness and make this rare disease visible, and especially, to raise funds for the research that Dr. Stuart Lipton (Scintillon Institute, San Diego ) is conducting with his team. If this research carries on,  a treatment is likely to be achieved for the children affected with this altered gene MEF2C .
