What is ACE?

Conquistando Escalones (Conquering Steps) is an association founded by affected of Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 1F (LGMD-1F) and family of them looking for fundraising for its treatment and cure.

Since the discovering of the gene that causes it, there are several investigations in progress to find the cure, finding out also that the protein affected is the one that transports the AIDS. The mutation of this gene makes the affected immune to AIDS and makes us be the entrance gate to a possible cure for this global pandemic. Also, regarding the complexity of our type of muscular dystrophy, the investigators assure that finding the cure will carry with it the solution for lots of other similar myopathies.

For this reason, we ask for your help to stop a disease which affects nowadays to 8 generations, attacking the next in a more virulent and cruel way than the previous. Furthermore, with your support, we would help million people all around the world.

Because if there is something harder than the fact of watching your close family and your friends turning off and leaving this world for a disease, this is to be so closed to a cure and can’t reach it because of the lack of money.
