3 €90,107,555 : With you, anything is possible ! Thank you ! 3
With the donation pledge counter amounting to more than €90 million, the 23rd Téléthon managed to rally generosity and solidarity, and take up the challenge despite difficult times. France showed its unwavering support for helping patients and their families to defeat long forgotten diseases. Such commitment over the long run has produced concrete results: today children are starting to benefit from innovative therapies.
“On behalf of the patients and their families, I would like to thank everyone who took part in this key event to combat diseases, which we have been leading together for more than 20 years. Today, 30 diseases are on the brink of being cured by medicine. With sheer determination, we will do our utmost so that the word “cure” becomes a reality for as many people as possible,” stated Laurence Tiennot-Herment, President of the AFM, after the 30-hour fund-raising marathon.
