Dane's TolmieToffee is certainly one of the holiday's special treats. We've been making TolmieToffee from my Dad's cousin Don's family recipe for close to 20 years now and it is simply extraordinary! As you will see on the "About Dane" page we lost our wonderful little boy on April 11th, 2010 to Zellweger Syndrome. We are now raising money to help find a cure to this horrible disease so 100% of the proceeds from your gift go to support research for children for peroxisomal disorders. Some of our favorite causes are the Institute for Systems Biology and the Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders. Please remember that your order is more about the donation than it is the toffee. Think of the TolmieToffee as Dane's wonderful little gift to you!
TolmieToffee comes packaged as 3-pack, 6-pack and 9-packs (the 9-packs are especialy great for those little gifts you're sure to need over the holidays!). We ship in these quantities for convenience and efficiency in shipping. Each individual box is beautifully wrapped with a bow and has a card describing your donation to help fight Zellwegers syndrome. And you know what? We're excited to announce that it's working...please read below!
EXCITING NEWS - OUR FUND RAISING IS WORKING!!!
Recent research at the University of Alberta has lead researchers to create the first ever multi-cellular model of the rare disease called Zellwegers Syndrome. "This is a major step forward", says Dr. Richard Rachubinski of University of Alberta, "and it has clinicians at Johns Hopkins and McGill universities excited. They have paired up with the U of A basic scientists and hope to take what the researchers learn in flies right to patients."
