Make a donation
Thanks to your donations, research is moving forwards, the first treatments have arrived and care and support for people affected by rare diseases has improved. Your donations drive the victories of AFM-Telethon!
Donations are a crucial form of support
When you make a donation you join a chain of solidarity that’s unique in the world.
What drives us? You, and the Telethon
You embody this unique commitment that nothing can break... If children are recovering, if patients awaiting treatment and parents find the strength to smile, to keep fighting and move forwards, it’s thanks to each one of you.
And it’s just a beginning. A new era has begun and could not have happened without your incredible solidarity. Today hope is becoming reality. And in the future we will face the storms together and achieve the victories for all those awaiting them.
Your solidarity is vital for us to continue these fights!
