"We would like to thank all of our Members and Supporters.
The APF is our Members.
We are very blessed to have so many wonderful people helping us to educate and train Doctors for our Porphyria care.

We would like to take a minute and apologize for any confusion about the Suggested Donation for APF Membership.
There was a problem with the website and the changes to the Join the APF form had been lost. The problem has now been corrected. There is no fee for membership to the APF. There is a suggested donation for membership because the APF runs on donations. The website, Educational materials for you and your Doctors are just a few of the many things that the APF does.

Your donations can also go to specific projects if you choose.

Maybe finances wont allow you to donate Money.
If you would like to donate your time there are always ways to assist us with the many ongoing projects.
If interested Contact us at

Thank you again for all your support!"
