Founder

Cure & Action for Tay-Sachs (CATS) Foundation

Dan’s eldest daughter Amelie was diagnosed with Tay-Sachs in 2011 at 15 months of age and upon finding that there was no dedicated charity providing support for families affected by this disease he set set-up the Cure & Action for Tay-Sachs (CATS) Foundation with his wife Patricia.

Since the charity was launched, they have been able to grow The CATS Foundation so that it now offers a variety of services to its family members and has actively involved in the research investigating therapeutic treatments for Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease.
