Wiskott-Aldrich Foundation

“The Wiskott-Aldrich Foundation is a volunteer run, non-profit organization, dedicated to funding research to find improved cures for Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome, and to support for families living with the disease around the world. We are a group of passionate individuals, each with our own area of expertise, with a common mission to help families and patients with WAS. The Wiskott-Aldrich Foundation is a merger of two organizations: For Pete’s Sake Foundation based in Georgia, whose focus was to provide support for families with WAS, and The Wiskott-Aldrich Foundation of North Carolina, focused on WAS research, education, and community support.”​

Key Support Offerings

The Wiskott-Aldrich Foundation is dedicated to serving patients with Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome (WAS) and their families worldwide by funding research and providing educational, financial, and emotional support. The Foundation accomplishes this by working with leading WAS scientists and organizations to identify and fund promising research to find better cures for WAS with the goal of improving the quality of lives of affected children and families.

What Makes WAF Great?
