This year marks the 16th anniversary of the discovery of the FOP gene. That means 16 years of hope, progress and determination to find a cure. We think that’s worth celebrating, and we hope you’ll join us!
FOP Awareness Day falls on April 23, but just like in the past, we’ll be recognizing it all month long—starting today! We are so excited to have 15 organizations representing 19 countries participating in this global event.
Check out some of the ways you can get involved right now:
- Generous friends of the IFOPA are matching the first $50,000 we raise by April 30 in honor of FOP Awareness Day! But we must raise that amount to be eligible for the match. Help us kick things off with a gift today!
- Buy your 2022 Global Awareness Day t-shirt or hoodie to show your support in style.
- Participate in our 23 Days of FOP Awareness Challenges to share FOP facts, messages and videos on social media to raise awareness.
We can’t wait to see what this month holds for our FOP community. Visit the special FOP Awareness Day page on our website for all the details and to share it with others to help spread the word. Starting today, join us to Hope. Believe. Wish. for a future without FOP.
