FOP Awareness Day is April 23

Help spread the word and join us for a full month of activities!

The FOP community will be celebrating the 17th anniversary of the announcement of the discovery of the FOP gene throughout the entire month of April starting today. We hope you'll join us! Awareness Day is April 23, and we need you to help get the word out and share it with your family and friends. 

This year, we're so excited to have 15 organizations representing 20 countries participating in this global event. 

Here are some ways you can kick off FOP Awareness Day right now:

  • Make a generous gift and encourage others to do the same — The first $50,000 in gifts made before April 30 will provide DOUBLE the impact for the FOP community thanks to a generous match by friends of the IFOPA. (link to
  • Grab your 2023 FOP Awareness Day items — There are several items to choose from, including t-shirts in several styles, hoodies, tote bags in 3 sizes and colors, a water bottle and even a doggie tee for your small to extra-large companions!
  • Keep an eye on the FOP Awareness Day web page — You'll get a chance to preview this year's six Awareness Day videos, and you'll get more details about our daily social media posts that you can reshare or retweet to help raise awareness.
  • Get active on social media! From April 1-23 we'll post a fact or video each day for you to reshare or retweet. Visit the IFOPA's Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn pages or the social media page of your local FOP organization for the day's FOP fact.

Our month-long FOP Awareness Day celebration is a special way for our global community to come together, spread the word — and make a difference! Please join us for all the fun and excitement!

We are powerful when we Hope. Believe. Wish. for a future without FOP together.
