In honor of all those who have Dandy-Walker Syndrome and those that have lost their lives due to Dandy-Walker, we are dedicated in helping the Dandy-Walker Alliance raise awareness for this syndrome, provide general information, educational materials and support to anyone affected by or interested in Dandy-Walker Syndrome. We support legislation that will help expedite goals for DWS, and raise money to support research efforts to find causes, better treatment options and a cure for Dandy-Walker.
