Thank you ASXL card.jpg

Please consider to sponsor ASXL Families and contribute to our Family Scholarships Fund!

 

When most families visit their doctors, their child is the doctor’s only ASXL patient. Often one parent must quit employment to manage his/her child’s complex medical care and fragmented bureaucracy for services. Medical supplies, medicines, testing, and equipment may not be covered.

We invite you to support our Family Scholarships Fund to subsidize and sponsor travel so that families can obtain important information from ASXL medical and scientific professionals, connect with other families who have similar struggles, and provide patient samples for research. Please consider to donate today — any amount is appreciated.

THANK YOU for your continued support and for joining us on this incredible journey!

 

For ASXL Families — 2019 Conference

The ARRE Foundation will subsidize hotel stays for all families at the Hilton Garden Inn where the family portion of the conference will be hosted. The subsidy for ASXL families will be for both July 19 & 20, 2019 at the rate of $95 USD plus taxes and fees. Families are responsible for providing their credit card at check in and are responsible for any incidentals during their stay.  Meals will be provided during the conference.

ARRE will also offer travel scholarships to families of ASXL patients to help offset the cost of travel to the 2nd ASXL Conference at the University of Michigan, from July 19-21, 2019 (Hilton Garden Inn, Ann Arbor). The travel bursary is meant for those patients and caregivers who would not be able to fully cover the cost of travel from their home to Michigan to attend the conference in person.

An independent party will review, evaluate, and approve applications based on the information provided below. Consideration will be given to the type of travel required and the associated cost, as well as the number of applications received. Scholarships will be awarded to successful applicants.
