Funding Research to Find a Cure

The PNH Research & Support Foundation is dedicated to funding research to find a cure and new treatments for paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) and to helping PNH patients in need with limited funding for disease-related expenses not covered by insurance.

The PNH Research & Support Foundation

PNH Basics

Together with our partner, the Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation, the PNH Research & Support Foundation believes patients and their families should be well informed about their diagnosis and PNH treatment options. We recognize that one of the single most important things you can do is to see a specialist who understands the unique needs of PNH patients, and who knows about the latest treatments. The PNH Research & Support Foundation is dedicated to helping PNH patients in need with limited funding for disease-related expenses not covered by insurance.

You Are Not Alone

Because PNH is so rare, it is often difficult to connect to others who are dealing with issues similar to your own. We can help.

Use our Support Connection to access our one-to-one network of trained volunteer PNH patients, caregivers, and family members, willing to listen and offer comfort and support. Connect to our patient educator who can help with medical information, advice, and referrals. Email or phone (301) 279-7202 x140.
