GAN stands for giant axonal neuropathy, which is an inherited condition involving dysfunction of a specific type of protein in nerve cells. Initially, it effects walking, but as the child ages impact becomes more severe—increased loss of sensation, coordination, strength, and reflexes. Hearing and visual problems can arise, too. Other more debilitating and life threatening severities develop as well. This is a very rare condisition and funds to cure it are even more rare. Please help with the simple act of purchasing a book.
