The Harry Hoffman Fund is a restricted fund within NTSAD. It was established by Sharon and Steven Hoffman in memory of their son, Harry, who lost his battle with Tay-Sachs before his third birthday. Harry battled the consequences of his condition every day. The fund is dedicated to ensuring that someday all children will be born healthy and can grow and play in a world free of genetic disease. The fund supports research, education, prevention and family support services for Tay-Sachs and the allied diseases.
