Our Story

The journey of Care4ASH1L began its roots in early 2020 when two mothers, with ASH1L children, met on a social media platform. They were desperate to help their children and were seeking ways to understand the diagnosis of ASH1L. The idea of Care4ASH1L struck when they heard a CBC podcast of another rare disease family. Thus began the odyssey of Care4ASH1L.
