Support for Families

If your family is now faced with the diagnosis of Canavan, GM1 Gangliosidosis, Sandhoff or Tay-Sachs disease, know that you are not alone.

It is overwhelming and you don't know what to do next. We understand you are in the throes of processing the diagnosis and we're so sorry. You may have many questions and searching for answers, such as in asking Dr. Google, which may lead to more questions and confusion. We are here to help you navigate it all. NTSAD's Family Services Team is here to help you get what you need in this moment in time.

Help us get to know you and your family by completing this form here and we will be in touch with you.
