Dear Friends,

Thank you for your support of this year’s Three Village Basket Raffle to fund APS Type 1 research. The event was a huge success, and we were able to raise just over $11,000. Your help continues to make it possible for us to fund research, that otherwise would not be done, to find a cure for this disease. All monies raised go to the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD, www.rarediseases.org) Restricted Grant Fund APS Type 1. This not-for-profit organization advertises that the grant monies are available to fund research specific to APS Type 1. Their staff of physicians examines the submitted proposals and selects the best one. Finally, they monitor the ongoing research.

Going into next year’s research grant cycle, the fund has a balance of $41,205 (not including this year’s basket raffle) raised toward a goal of $100,000 – which will generate our largest grant to date. Since the start of the NORD APS Type 1 research fund back in 2007, we have raised a total of $180,150. To learn more about the research we’ve funded to date or to learn more about Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome (APS Type 1), please visit www.apstype1.org.

Because of people like you, all of those who live with APS Type 1 and their families have the hope that one day there will be a cure.

With our sincerest gratitude,
David and Sherri Seyfert
