Your contribution to the HSAN Research Fund can make a difference!
Help us provide the best possible scientific and medical research for the benefit of people with HSAN
HSAN (hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy) disorders are characterized by reduced sensation, autonomic dysfunction and progressive loss of function of peripheral nerves. There are five types of HSAN (familial dysautonomia is HSAN type 3).
The Dysautonomia Foundation supports research leading to better understanding and treatment of HSAN disorders. Doctors and researchers at our Dysautonomia Center at NYU Langone Medical Center conduct clinical research for the benefit of people suffering with HSAN.
We are hoping that you will join us in our mission by making a contribution. The Dysautonomia Foundation is a 501(c)3 public charity, and all contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. Your contribution, no matter how much, can make a difference as we try to help improve the quality of life and life expectancy for people with HSAN disorders.
