Welcome to APS Friends & Support Forum.

The APS Friends & Support Forum is brought to you by the APS Foundation of America, Inc (APSFA).  The APSFA is the only United States nonprofit health agency dedicated to bringing national awareness to Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome (APS), the major cause of multiple miscarriages, thrombosis, young strokes and heart attacks. We are a volunteer run, community based, 501(c)3 non-profit Public Charity organization and are dedicated to fostering and facilitating joint efforts in the areas of education, support, public awareness, research and patient services.  Our URL is http://www.apsfa.org

The APSFA works with our Medical Advisory team to bring you the most up to date information on APS, related diseases and syndromes.  The foundation, along with our Medical Advisors http://www.apsfa.org/medadvisory.htm write and review our newsletters http://www.apsfa.org/downloads.htm and contribute content to the website for the benefit of our members.  The APSFAs Medical Advisory Team includes nationally & internationally recognized experts on Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome.

The APSFA has designated June as “APS Awareness Month” and we are working hard to get this recognized nationally.  On the forum, you will see announcements on actions you can take to help spread APS awareness in your area and we also post progress that the APSFA is making.

The APS Friends & Support is a private forum and it is funded by the APSFA. This forum was created as a part of the APS Foundation of America, Inc Mission Statement and Goals http://www.apsfa.org/aboutusf.htm and is provided to you as a FREE service.
