You can “unlock” a potential project to treat achondroplasia through the REACT community. I discovered this community several months ago and I only share it on facebook, but I share it now here, the right place to ask your support once just one person besides me decided to support this project.
The RE(ACT) Community is organized around four main axis dedicated to research on rare and orphan diseases: Learn, Meet, Share and Support. By supporting a research projects declared eligible for funding by the RE(ACT) and BLACKSWAN Foundation Scientific Advisory Board are associated to a Disease Dossier and are also visible on a specific section of the platform dedicated to crowdfunding (“Projects” page). Once the Scientific Advisory Board approves a project, another criterion is required to be entitled for funding: a minimum number of followers on the Disease Dossier. This additional criterion prevents the dispersion of small donations through a large variety of research projects.
And you can be a supporter by following achondroplasia and help open a new project.
