Project Breaking Point is all about one thing. To continue the legacy of one great man who is sadly no longer with us, Dr Philip Stavish. We inspire adventures, we promote health. We make healthy babies.
In 2015, Phil’s Kids, a non-profit organisation, was born. One of Phil’s Kids’ aims is to educate the world about Huntington’s Disease (HD). HD is a genetic degenerative neurological disease that affects the brain and nervous system. There is currently no cure or effective treatment available for HD. However, with major breakthroughs in medicine in recent times, effective drugs to make the disease at least manageable are on the horizon.
Phil’s Kids main aim is to help the current generation in a family be the last generation to have HD. This is done through a procedure known as PGD-IVF. PGD-IVF allows the family at risk or diagnosed to have children who do not carry the HD gene thus breaking the chain in that family line, forever.
So if you would like to make some babies with us we would love you forever! Just the smallest donation could make the biggest difference in the life of a new family.
