Sadly, there is currently no cure or treatment for Tay-Sachs disease. To address the symptoms, a child diagnosed with the disorder may need a wheel chair, anti-seizure medication, or a feeding tube with specialized nutrition and hydration. Wheelchairs may cost between $200 and $4000, and anti-seizure medication may cost $300 per month. The cost of applying a feeding tube, usually within a hospital setting, and the specialized nutrition and hydration supplied varies and increases with the duration of their use (Mayoclinic.org).
