FD/MAS Patients Need and Deserve Better Treatments
Fibrous dysplasia/McCune-Albright syndrome (FD/MAS) is a rare and debilitating disease that has no FDA-approved treatment. It causes fibrous tissue to grow in place of healthy bone and often causes chronic pain, loss of mobility, hormonal imbalances, skin marks, deformity, and more. There is no cure and no way to slow the disease down.
In six years, Team FD/MAS has raised almost $750,000 for FD/MAS research through the UPenn Orphan Disease Center’s Million Dollar Bike Ride (MDBR) thanks to Team Captain Cindi Brandt Levin, the Levin family, the FD/MAS Alliance, and the FD/MAS community. These research grants are focused on developing a deeper understanding of the disease and finding better treatments (and someday a cure)!
