Fund Treatment for KIF1A Kids

The Story

KIF1A Disorder is an extremely rare disease affecting children with mutations in the KIF1A gene. KIF1A Disorder causes a degenerative neurological syndrome with a progressive course.
Approximately 30 children in the world are reported to have KIF1A Disorder. There is no cure or treatment. Yet.

We are raising funds to accelerate KIF1A research and immediately discover treatment (Click Here To Donate). The window of opportunity to help kids with KIF1A is not a big one, every single day matters. With your help we will fund a fleet of scientists to work around the clock and discover a cure for every kid living with KIF1A. Waiting is not an option for KIF1A kids, we need treatment today.With guidance from physicians specializing in genetics and neurology, we are funding research leading to clinical trials, treatment, and eventually a cure for KIF1A Disorder. Our goal is very possible.

Thank you for helping us cure KIF1A.

Summary:

Golden State now holds a (3-0) series advantage after grinding out a 118-113 win on the road in game two.  Cleveland has to be kicking themselves having held the lead from midway through the third quarter up until the last minute of the game when the Warriors finished them off with an 11-0 run.  The Warriors outrebounded the Cavaliers 44-37 and out-shot them 48% to 44%.  Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Stephen Curry all scored 20 or more points.  The most amazing stat from this game: Cleveland was +7 in the 46 minutes Lebron James played and -12 in the two minutes he sat.  James, of course, was tremendous again with 39 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assists.  Kyrie Irving was unstoppable attacking the basket with his 38 points.  The Warriors have completely neutralized Tristan Thompson who had 0 points and 3 rebounds in 23 minutes.  Cleveland shot just 27% from three-point range which is a huge problem when you take 44 shots from behind the line.  After such a demoralizing loss, I believe the Warriors will blow out the Cavaliers in game four and finish off their perfect 16-0 playoff run with an NBA Championship.
