Imagine & Believe 2020

Virtual Event- Tuesday, November 10th 4:30-5:30 p.m. EST.

Thank you for Imagining and Believing with NTSAD! We had more than 200 people join us on November 10, and we raised more than $100,000 to sustain NTSAD’s ongoing programs and services for families.

Watch the event, and Imagine & Believe videos Here.


Join NTSAD on November 10th where we will share advances in research and honor patients and families at NTSAD’s annual Imagine & Believe event. Several families will share their stories, experiences, and hopes for the future.

“Thirteen years ago, I joined NTSAD to drive research. Today, we have at least 10 companies working on drug development with several clinical trials underway and an equal number of academic institutions and companies working on diagnostics, natural history studies, as well as other clinical development tools. We can truly imagine and believe there will be effective treatments for patients and families in the very, near future. This year at Imagine & Believe, we will highlight our powerful community, particularly the families we serve. After all, supporting families is the center of everything we do.” -- Sue Kahn, NTSAD executive director.

The event raises vital funds for supportive services for individuals and families affected by Tay-Sachs, Canavan, GM1, and Sandhoff diseases.
