DONATE TO KELLEIGH’S CAUSE
Kelleigh’s Cause is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable founded by Kelleigh Gustafson. Our mission is to raise awareness and fund research for AVMs. As well, we want to create a community where those with AVMs and their families can turn.
World renown Vascular Interventional Radiologist Dr. Patricia Burrows, in partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, has begun the research.
Funds raised will be used to support translational research [the use of basic research techniques to solve clinical problems] in the field of vascular anomalies, in particular arteriovenous malformations. Money is needed to pay for the tests that analyze proteins produced by AVMs [mass spectroscopy], develop animal models to test new drugs for AVM, develop and test quantitative imaging tests for patients with AVM, and to pay the salary of a postdoctoral fellow to carry out the basic science needed to solve these problems.
