On behalf of the entire celiac disease patient community, thank you for your tremendous support of our Gift of Hope campaign. We are so grateful to everyone who contributed as together we raised funds to support research, advocacy, and education.
As we continue pressing our agenda each day to accelerate research for treatments and a cure, we use every available resource – and the funds donated during our annual year-end Gift of Hope campaign are critical to our efforts.
Our investments are showing real returns. After our strong lobbying efforts, the National Institutes of Health now funds celiac disease research, and in the last five years we have seen an explosion in the number of biopharmaceutical companies interested in celiac disease. Today, there are a number of promising clinical trials for novel approaches to treat or cure celiac disease – many of which are being supported by the Celiac Disease Foundation.
Your generosity empowers the Foundation to do what is necessary to foster the creative thinking and innovation needed to solve celiac disease and enhance quality of life for all who are affected. Thank you for your support this season.
