Angelman Syndrome (AS) is a rare neurogenetic disorder affecting approximately 1 in 15,000 live births. Individuals with AS typically have balance issues, motor impairment, and debilitating seizures. Some patients never walk and most do not speak. Nathan is a happy, loving, and determined little boy, even through seizures, endless doctor & therapy appointments. He works hard every day to keep up with his two siblings!
