What Patients and Families Need to Know About RYR-1-Related Diseases

In November 2019, the RYR-1 Foundation was awarded a $50,000 grant from The Oscar G. & Elsa S. Mayer Family Foundation to produce a handbook for patients and families affected by RYR-1-related diseases. Difficulty with accessing reliable and easily comprehended information on these rare conditions is a tremendous source of frustration and anxiety for affected individuals and families. With this grant, the RYR-1 Foundation will produce an informative guide with practical and easily understood information. The RYR-1 Foundation is incredibly grateful for the support from The Oscar G. & Elsa S. Mayer Family Foundation.
