We're Partnering With The Mighty!

We're thrilled to announce a new partnership that will bring our resources in front of The Mighty's wide-reaching readership. We will now have a growing home page on The Mighty and appear on many stories on the site.

The Mighty is a story-based health community focused on improving the lives of people facing disease, disorder, mental illness and disability. More than half of Americans are facing serious health conditions or medical issues. They want more than information. They want to be inspired. The Mighty publishes real stories about real people facing real challenges.

We're dedicated to helping people with porphyria in their lives. With this partnership, we'll be able to help even more people.
We encourage you to submit a story to The Mighty and make your voice heard.

Welcome to our Mighty community!

We’re so glad you’re here.

By subscribing to our newsletter, you’ll receive a weekly digest of compelling personal essays and the latest news stories about disability, disease and mental illness. We strive to create and deliver the best resources for our readers. We’ll never send you spam, and you can unsubscribe anytime (but we hope you don’t!).

You’ll also be introduced to our growing Mighty contributor community — the people behind many of the powerful stories we highlight every week. Hopefully you’ll be inspired to share a story of your own, too. (Read our submissions page for more info on that.)

Stay tuned for our next edition. We can't wait for you to read it.
