In 2006 Alyssa's Angel Fund was created in honor of Alyssa, now 12 years old, who has Glycogen Storage Disease type 1a. Her parents, Gayle and Steve Temkin heard Alyssa's doctor, Dr. David Weinstein (or Doc David as Alyssa calls him), speak about a family whose child was struggling, and was possibly not going to survive. We could not let that happen to anyone!! Alyssa's Angel Fund benefits "other" GSD families who are not themselves financially able to get the medical expertise of Dr. David Weinstein. We made it our personal mission to be sure that those who needed, are able to go to and get the medical expertise of Doc David, ALL expenses paid, for themselves and their families. This can include transportation to and from, all hotel, food, medical, corn starch to go home with, and even at times toys and fun stuff to help make the trip even a little more pleasant.
