Eleanor Knippenberg's Story

Our beautiful daughter Eleanor was diagnosed with SYNGAP1 when she was 5. SYNGAP1 is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder caused by a genetic variant (minor typo in a patient's DNA). This variant causes all of the symptoms in SYNGAP patients: intellectual disability, epilepsy, autism, hypotonia (muscle weakness), limited speech (non-verbal), poor sleep and severe behaviors. Since 2018, SynGAP Research Fund has raised/granted over $5M to SYNGAP science to accelerate therapeutics for our loved ones. Treatments are within reach, but we cannot slow down now! We desperately want to find a cure for her and others just like her. Please consider donating to the SynGAP Research Fund. Anything can help get us closer to a cure! Thank you ❤️
