A cornerstone of our mission is to provide patients and their caregivers/family the information they need to help them. We understand it’s not simply about giving medical advice or emotional support, but providing the information and resources people need to understand their condition. Additionally, BSF sponsors programs aimed at bringing together members of the medical and scientific communities together to learn best practices and advance knowledge.
