You Can Help

FOP Researchers are tantalisingly close to major breakthroughs in treatment and even a possible cure. We are even seeing a real possibility of clinical trials of a number of possible treatments. 

Finding a cure for FOP will impact the lives of many as FOP research has potential applications to Osteoperosis, Arthritis, Hetrotopic Ossifications (a major complication in sport and military injuries and hip replacement surgeries), and other bone and muscle disorders. 

We need to keep funding the research and everyone can help!

We are not a big charity. We are not funded by government or big business and we don't have pharmaceutical companies looking for a cure.  Your donations are the difference between research continuing and it stopping completely.  All donations are gratefully received and via our Virgin Money Giving page we can claim Gift Aid. You can even set-up monthly donations of any size.  Even the smallest donations make a difference.  For large donations or other ways to donate please visit our donate page or contact us.

Fund Raising

Do you have a personal challenge planned?  If so, consider doing it on behalf of FOP Friends!  If a physical challenge is not for you, perhaps you would like to hold your own event.  Our supporters have ran marathons, swam, climbed, held coffee mornings, bingo nights, line dancing events, and even arranged sponsored walks.  For more information please visit our Fund Raising page where you will also find details of Friends of Oliver organised events and advice.
