This fund has been developed in response to patients who have contacted PAF for help with their medication expenses and could not find help. While this fund has been fully designed and we are ready to provide needed support to these patient communities, this fund is not yet able to accept applications for assistance as we are still working to secure charitable donations that will allow us to open it.
If you, or someone you know, would like to contribute to this fund, please visit our Donors page for more information on how to provide critical support for patients in need.Fund Type

About Wilson Disease
Wilson disease is a rare, inherited genetic disorder characterized by the accumulation of copper in the body. Due to a mutation of the ATP7B gene, this disease causes copper to build up in the liver, brain, corneas of the eyes (Kayser-Fleischer ring), and other organs. Without treatment, high copper levels can cause life-threatening organ damage including liver disease, central nervous system dysfunction and death. Most patients are diagnosed between the ages of 5 to 35, but it affects all ages, races and ethnic groups. Wilson disease occurs in approximately one in 30,000 to 40,000 people worldwide.
Other names for this condition include: copper storage disease, hepatolenticular degeneration syndrome, lenticular degeneration, progressive and WDA.
