Sydney & Brett Stelmaszek, SRF volunteers, share their journey with their 3 sons to find the best care for Emmitt, diagnosed w/ SYNGAP1 in 2019.

Sydney & Brett Stelmaszek are heavily involved in the SRF community. Sydney is on the BOD, is a patient advocate, and coordinates our connection with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Brett is the driving force behind Cannonball for the Cure (CFTC), an annual fundraiser where SYNGAP1 parents drive cross country live-streaming the entire journey to raise awareness of SYNGAP1. This episode touches on their involvement with SRF as well as raising their son Emmitt, diagnosed with SYNGAP1 while living in South Africa. Their story of excessive seizures, aggression, hope, and love while caring for Emmitt and his two brothers is at times heart-breaking, but always heartwarming.
