Become an Advocate for the MHE Research Foundation

While you may think that you are just one person, and your voice is too small to be heard, every effort makes a difference! In
fact, it is essential that you write to your elected officials. That's how grass-roots lobbying has its largest impact. The greater
number of people who write and call their representatives, the more influence we have in order to make a difference in the lives
of those with Multiple Hereditary Exostoses

Remember: MHE is serious, the research being conducted on MHE will benefit MHE patients world-wide and also could have great
implications for millions of patients who suffer from more common bone ailments, such as arthritis, osteoporosis, other
therapeutic applications including  inflammation, cancer, neuron degeneration and cardiovascular disorders.

We matter!

PLEASE HELP the children and adults living in with this disease.
They have the same dreams, aspirations and goals as other people but unfortunately face each day with greater struggle.

We need your support!
