The Aarskog Foundation is a global alliance of people living with Aarskog Syndrome (AS) of all nationalities. The Aarskog Foundation brings together National and International Aarskog Syndrome patients from around the world to create a global alliance of patients and families faced with common challenges derived from the uniqueness of this RARE Genetic condition. Addressing Aarskog Syndrome is vital in order for it to be recognized as a disability across all governing bodies to ensure all Aarskog patients have access to the same resources as any other person. Patients living with Aarskog Syndrome come together through The Aarskog Foundation in a structured environment to create an Aarskog community and a voice through advocacy and exchange experiences. To this end we aim to unite, expand and put Aarskog Syndrome on the agenda of organisations and institutions both in the UK and across the world.
We are a supportive Charity working to improve the quality of life for each individual Aarskog child and their families helping them to fulfill their potential educationally, to give ongoing support for Aarskog children who struggle receiving vital assessments and to educate others about some of the real difficulties faced growing up with the syndrome.
