Advocacy Empowers

There’s nothing more satisfying than being heard, or more soul-enriching than refusing to hide or be silent.

YOU can change the world.

YOU can do it in your community.

YOU can do it at your computer.

YOU can do it with your phone.

What you give to advocacy will come back to reward you many times over.

WE can make a difference.

WE will bring the promise of curative therapies to reality.

“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”  Christopher Reeve
