Resource:Phelan-McDermid Syndrome Foundation

Name: Resource:Phelan-McDermid Syndrome Foundation
Description: The Phelan-McDermid Syndrome Foundation, established in 2002, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit group that provides support services for those who have family members affected by 22q13 Deletion Syndrome / Phelan-McDermid Syndrome. It also raises money to further awareness of the syndrome through research and sponsoring an international conference every two years that brings together families, researchers and therapists. The Foundation facilitates connections between families through networking, communications and support services.

We also build alliances with other rare diseases groups to expand our reach and exposure.

The syndrome, which affects families worldwide, is a rare genetic occurrence and is the result of a damaged or missing protein on the 22nd chromosome.

Our Foundation works with researchers who are looking into the cause and possible cure for the syndrome. PMSF's grants and fellowships program is intended to encourage research projects that will advance the development of treatments and cures for PMS.

Our mission is to bring together everyone affected by 22q13 Deletion Syndrome/Phelan-McDermid Syndrome to help them through the challenges they face every day and to raise awareness in the medical and research communities.
