Our Foundation is unlike any other Foundation for Relapsing Polychondritis which have come and gone before us. This entity had been just a dream for many suffering from this relentless disease. Being incurable and progressive, there is a constant need for a unified, proactive voice for current and future patients, as well as their supporters. After many months of discussion and planning, The Relapsing Polychondritis Awareness and Support Foundation, Inc. was officially launched in April, 2013. Despite having no “seed money” and led by four RP patients, the Foundation has received a tremendous show of support. We have a very long road to travel. However, we also have the determination and dedication to make this grow and prosper. We intend to be the “long arm” and the “voice” for the ever-growing RP community.
