Mission & Purpose
To improve the lives of those affected by peripheral neuropathy through awareness, education, advocacy, and research to advance the discovery of new therapies and cures.
For Patients & Caregivers
For Research & Healthcare Providers
The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy's mission is to dramatically improve the lives of people living with peripheral neuropathy.
We do so by serving as the premier resource of information for patients, accelerating cures for peripheral neuropathy, funding collaborative efforts of leading scientists, and raising awareness for peripheral neuropathy.
To achieve our Mission, the Foundation funds some of the most brilliant minds in neuroscience. Since 2010, we have organized a collaborative approach that will allow researchers to achieve a high level of trust, openness and interaction marked by dynamic, intellectual and scientific relationships between them.
With an estimated 30 million people in the U.S.A. alone with peripheral neuropathy, and countless more worldwide, it is a wonder that more people are not aware of the condition. The Foundation continues to raise awareness for PN, and the need for more research and treatment options that work.
The Foundation offers a collection of free, peripheral neuropathy educational resources, videos, brochures, and transcripts for patients, caregivers, physicians, and more. These resources greatly benefit our community and we thank our scientific experts for their continued assistance in keeping us up-to-date.
Name It, Learn It, Cure It!
