The National MPS Society exists to cure, support and advocate for MPS and ML. Our mission serves individuals, families and friends affected by MPS in the following ways.
To Support Research
The National MPS Society and its members raise money to provide student fellowships and fund research projects. We participate in and host technical conferences that allow researchers to collaborate and discuss their findings. We collaborate with other lysosomal storage disease (LSD) patient support groups and family research foundations to fund research.
To Support Families
Our family support programs range from continuing education scholarships to medical travel expense assistance, and we publish a series of resource guides dealing with specific syndromes and treatments that can help families learn more about the MPS diagnosis and the future to come. Our digital newsletter, Courage, features stories on research and medical advances, family news, upcoming events, advocacy opportunities and fundraising efforts. Each year, we hold a conference at different locations, enabling families to meet and learn more about their disease. We also provide emotional support to all those affected by MPS.
