There are many ways to get involved, one of the biggest most helpful is donating. One of the many reasons why diseases/disorders are “rare” or not commonly heard of is because there isn’t enough funding to do extensive research to learn more. Below are a few different Non-Profits I hold close to my heart and invite you to take part in! Wether you contribute $5 or $100 know that anything counts and will be of help!
Dysautonomia International is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and was founded by parents, doctors, caregivers and more in 2012 to assist people living with all different forms of Dysautonomia. By donating to Dysautonomia International you are helping fund “research on autonomic disorders, training programs for doctors, nurses, and other medical professional, educational patient programs, and programs that raise awareness about Dysautonomia to the general public.”
