The APS Type 1 Foundation was established and gained non-profit status in March of 2014. The goal of the foundation is to support education, awareness, and fundraising for the limited number of physicians who are doing critical research on the “AIRE” Gene.

We have raised over $400,000 through a restricted grant with the National Organization of Rare Disorders (NORD) and have a research project ongoing with the University of California San Francisco. We will continue our work through NORD but with the establishment of our own foundation we will begin to look at other venues and opportunities to support critical projects such as the APS Type 1 whole life study currently being conducted at the NIH by Dr Lionakis and his colleges.

We hope you consider supporting us not only with your time, your prayers for all those challenged with this difficult condition, but financially as well. You can make a contribution by using the button below:
