Information, support, and resources regarding the more than 7,000 rare diseases in the world, which includes Sanfilippo Syndrome, can be scarce. Cure Sanfilippo Foundation has expanded its website to help fill the gap of information about Sanfilippo Syndrome for families and caregivers of children with the disease, physicians and clinicians, researchers, and people looking to support the fight to find a cure.

“To best support and represent the families fighting Sanfilippo Syndrome — their story and this fight, it was time to take the Foundation’s website to the next level,” said VP of Marketing Katie Walton. “Additionally, the Foundation believes the website is a way to support and empower physicians, researchers, and supporters, all of whom are the key to finding a cure for Sanfilippo Syndrome.”
