Accelerate Research

Cure Sanfilippo conducts and funds promising research, projects, and clinical trials. Learn more about our research efforts.

Drive Collaboration

Together, a cure comes sooner. We collaborate with families, researchers, academic institutions, regulators, and bio-technology companies.

Increase Awareness

The more people who know about Sanfilippo, the more progress that happens to find a cure. So we help elevate awareness of Sanfilippo.

Raise Funds

We set ambitious annual fundraising goals in order to fund research for every kind of Sanfilippo and to dictate and accelerate the pace of research.

Support/Unite Families

Cure Sanfilippo connects families globally with the latest information on current research, as well as provides support for fundraising and caring for their children.

When our daughter Eliza was diagnosed with Sanfilippo Syndrome at the age of four, we decided we had to do everything possible to find a cure. It was the motivation that any parent can relate to as you will “got to the ends of the earth” for your child. So, we created Cure Sanfilippo Foundation in order to pursue every avenue to change the fate for every Sanfilippo child, not just our daughter. TIME is not on these children’s side, so the URGENCY is paramount. Cure Sanfilippo Foundation has come to represent a collection of Sanfilippo families (more than 80 globally and growing) and friends/supporters from across the country fighting to save our children under a single umbrella. There’s HOPE for a cure, and that HOPE comes from the ACTION that is being taken from supporters like you, to further this mission to save children, and cure Sanfilippo.
