We thought we'd show you some highlights of the year that was 2017 via our Year in Review. Download a PDF of the Report by clicking here  

2017 was the year the Sanfilippo Children's Foundation concluded its fourth year of operation. It was a year of celebration, collaboration, advocacy and many a milestone.


On our cover this year is one of our newly-diagnosed families. Meet the Tiefels: Rohanne and Phil and their three-year-old twin boys Dominic (unaffected) and Lucas who is battling Sanfilippo Syndrome. The family has joined us in our mission to fund research having started the Hope for Lucas campaign.


The Abeona Therapuetics clinical gene therapy trial began on Australian soil, and our fledgling Foundation also took out top gong with the Advocacy Award in the Research Australia annual Health and Medical Research Awards in Melbourne. 


We invite you to please enjoy this Year in Review. Now more than ever we need you our community to continue to support the Sanfilippo Children's Foundation and surround us with energy and encouragement.
