The Cushing's Support and Research Foundation, Inc., (CSRF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing information and support to individuals and family members affected by Cushing's disease and Cushing's syndrome. Cushing's syndrome is a rare endocrine disorder caused by abnormally increased secretion of adrenocortical hormones due to tumors of the adrenal cortex, a tumor in the pituitary gland or ectopic (usually lung or pancreatic) tumors. Established in 1995, the Cushing Support and Research Foundation is committed to increasing public awareness of these two disorders; serving as a source of information and support for healthcare professionals; and raising and distributing funds for Cushing's disease and Cushing's syndrome research. The foundation also enables affected individuals to exchange information, resources, and support through its networking program; provides appropriate referrals (e.g., to support groups); and offers a variety of educational materials including a newsletter, fact sheets and brochures.
