The Conquistando Escalones Association is formed by a family that suffers from a rare, genetic and degenerative disease called Limb-girdle Muscular Dystrophy 1F. The genetic mutation that causes it is in the protein that introduces HIV into the body when a person becomes infected. Researchers have demonstrated in the laboratory, that therefore, said mutation, makes them immune to HIV and seek a cure that can not only can save them, but a is also door to a cure for millions. Currently there are up to 7 research groups from Spain and Italy, in coordination with different research centers and laboratories around the world who work for it. And it is the Conquistando Escalones Association which does not stop to get the funds to pay for them. € 200,000 raised thanks to campaigns, events and proposals like this one, making their own craft beer. By the end of 2018 € 150,000 more will be needed.
