Mission Statement

Creating a path to treatment for chromosome 8p disorders through research, community, and intelligent information.

Description

Project 8p Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is researching 8p disorders to find treatment options and give meaningful answers to those affected and their families. We are patient-led. Currently, there is no cure for 8p disorders, nor is there a standard course of treatment. Project 8P is the only organization dedicated to funding research to uncover treatment for chromosome 8p disorder. Chromosome 8p is a rare genetic condition with approximately 350 patients around the world and counting. A chromosome disorder typically impacts every cell in your body, not just in one organ of your body, but often your entire human system. Right now, science does not have the means to treat this condition. The good news is that the scientific community is making substantial progress and together with Project 8p, we are going to do everything we can to help.
