DEDICATED TO PROMOTING SMA CARRIER TESTING & EDUCATION
The Claire Altman Heine Foundation (CAHF) was formed in 2004 after Claire’s tragic death to implement public health policy to promote pan-ethnic carrier screening for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). At the time this was a timely though challenging aspiration, yet thanks in large part to the unwavering support and inspiration of our donors, collaborators in medicine, public health, and industry, we have materially achieved this goal. Together, we have made a difference and helped thousands of families.
In memory of Claire, January–October 2004
While “closing” CAHF is bittersweet, we are proud of CAHF’s role in implementing pan-ethnic carrier screening for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). We will continue to support and work to further perfect our cause.
Thank you for all your support.
