Leading the worldwide fight to treat and cure
Tay-Sachs, Canavan, GM1 and Sandhoff diseases


NTSAD relies on volunteers to help spread the word and raise awareness.

With the exception of our small staff, everyone involved with NTSAD, including its Board of Directors and Committee members, generously give their time, energy and talents to NTSAD for free so we can spend less on administrative costs and more on raising awareness and finding a cure.

Come join our growing team of passionate volunteers!
