We are excited to partner with KAT6A Foundation by providing  a portion of the profits to their awesome mission! 

 Their mission is to support people and their families living with KAT6A and KAT6B related disorders. It is imperative to raise funds to further research and identify possible treatments that could lead to a better quality of life. We aim to inform, raise awareness, and identify more individuals with KAT6A and KAT6B gene mutations. This enables researchers and clinicians the opportunity to discover more about these rare disorders and give our community greater consideration.
