The Hunter Syndrome Foundation aims to fund and find a cure for Hunter Syndrome.Hunter Syndrome or Mucopolysaccharidosis Type II (MPS II) is a rare genetic disorder that slowly destroys the body’s cells. This is a rare condition affecting 1 in 150,000 males. There is currently no cure, and the disease is progressive and life-limiting.
The Hunter Syndrome Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation (IRS Tax ID# 46-4296623) with a mission to fund potential therapies that will ultimately find a cure for this disorder. The Foundation is run by volunteers, thus administrative and operating costs are kept to a minimum so that 100% of your contribution goes towards finding a cure. To donate click here.
We partner with other organizations to achieve our mission. We are members of the Hunter Syndrome Research Coalition, a group of organizations that seeks to advance research toward a cure for this disorder. We will coordinate with this Coalition to fund the most promising research program(s) which offer treatment opportunities.
