Why We're Doing This

Why did we start APS Foundation of America, Inc. and this related forum?  We both felt there needed to be a central location in the USA for Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, it’s related diseases and general Thrombophilia information. We are independent and donating all of the costs for the website and forum to support our mission.  Our mission is to spread awareness of APS and other clotting problems and for patients, family and friends to understand this disease.  You can find our full mission and goals by clicking here: http://www.apsfa.org/aboutusf.htm

The APS Foundation of America, Inc. and APS Friends & Support forum and are independently funded and maintained by Heidi and Tina. We do not receive any funding from advertising. 

This forum has caught the attention of researchers at various major medical facilities accross the United States.   We have started our own Non Profit Organization so we can apply for grants to be able to publish awareness materials and have a newsletter.


Please Email us at staff@apsfa.org if you have any questions or concerns.
