6 year-old Jack Fowler suffers from MPS II. His cognitive abilities have regressed rapidly and he needs a life-saving and very promising treatment to halt the progression of the disease. Read Jack's Story here.
The Isaac Foundation's mission is to fund innovative research projects that aim to find a cure for MPS, a rare, debilitating, and devastating disease. We provide support for families of individuals suffering from MPS and advocate on their behalf to ensure government funding for expensive, life-sustaining treatments are covered by the health care system.
We are thrilled to partner with Deb and Ryan Purcell as they bring their MPS II Research Fund to The Isaac Foundation. Together, we aim to find a cure for MPS II. Along the way, we will be supporting families diagnosed with MPS II with educational information and working to connect newly diagnosed families with kids and parents who are here help in any way they can.
In early 2013, The Isaac Foundation partnered with the MPS II Research Fund, formally with the Canadian MPS Society, as we seek the find a cure for MPS II. Please visit the Purcell's website for information on how you can help!
