Protect the Future

Protect the Future

The Protect the Future campaign was established to attract and train the next generation of doctors and specialists in the field of Porphyria. Over the next decade, we will lose ninety percent of our valued Porphyria experts. These men and women have led Porphyria research, testing and treatment for the past 30 years. Without financial support, we run the risk of losing knowledge of the disease, quality testing, diagnosis, and treatment, and ultimately a cure.
Protect the Future supports young doctors who work and study with long-time experts, seeing patients and doing research, in order to gain the expertise they will need to care for the U.S. Porphyria patient population for decades to come.
Protect the Future is a separate fundraising campaign with its own specific needs. We are seeking additional donations for the specific purpose of locating and training new Porphyria specialists.
You and I are pulled in so many directions for our donations, such as churches, police leagues and schools. But rarely will we be presented with an opportunity to affect the course of our own lives and those of our children for years to come.
Please consider a donation or fundraiser to support this goal.
Let’s work together to bring another great specialist into our lives. We are so very fortunate to have the few Porphyria experts who are presently in the field. Now we can protect our own future by adding more doctors.
Donate now!
Please make a note that you are donating to the Protect the Future campaign so that we can allocate those funds appropriately.
