Our goals to raise awareness include:
♦ Holding respectful global public demonstrations to aid in removingthe stigma attached to these illnesses.
♦ Educating medical personnel, pharmacists, hospitals, and the public onthe facts of these diseases and current research being performed.
♦ Raising funding for research to identify biomarkers for proper diagnosisand clinical trials.
