Mission

Fabry Support & Information Group (FSIG) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to raise awareness of Fabry disease and its symptoms and to improve the quality of life for those affected by Fabry. The FSIG website provides information and mutual self-help by linking patients and family members/caregivers. In this way members can support and encourage one another. An increased understanding of Fabry disease and emotional support may alleviate some of the burden associated with this rare disorder.
