We are excited to share some good news with you. After 16 years we have redefined the Foundation’s mission. We are priding ourselves by being an organization that is operated solely by IGAN caregivers and patients. Our new mission statement is:
“Our mission is to be a patient-centric organization focused on finding a cure for IgA Nephropathy. Using the power of the patient community we are focused on funding research, using patient advocacy to empower our patients, and building a network of support. As a patient run organization, we will work together with the hope of finding better treatment options and ultimate cure.”
This is going to be a big year of growth for the Foundation. Be on the lookout for more IGAN education with webinars and utilizing our social media platforms. We have several new committees onboard and we are excited to extend our patient service nationally and plan on internationally as this growth takes place.
