Elevate Hope Today!

When we say your donations are life changing, we really mean it.   

Many MPS affected children undergo multiple surgeries, having progressively less movement due to problems with joints & spine, the eventual need for a wheelchair, breathing, & other equipment, the possible loss of neurological & cognitive abilities, or spend hours every week hooked up to an IV for enzyme replacement therapy.

With your donations, we can continue to provide direct financial and practical support to affected families across Canada and help fund a cure for the thousands of children, adults and families affected by MPS and related lysosomal storage diseases.
