February is Marfan & Related Disorders Awareness Month!
Research over the last four decades has led to remarkable progress in understanding Marfan syndrome (MFS) and led to improved clinical management; doubling the life expectancy to near normal for most patients. Through the generosity of the Temerty Foundation and our members, GADA Canada continues to provide support towards Marfan research since 1999. Click here for MFS research supported by GADA
Together with research developments, building awareness of Marfan syndrome has played a crucial role in educating families and health-care professionals; increasing number of early diagnosis and making the outcomes of research more effective.
