Towards a Cure for HSP

Please give generously today to help find an effective treatment for Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP) - an inherited, degenerative disease affecting mainly the legs, causing spasticity, muscle weakness and severely impairing walking. Many people with HSP rely on a wheelchair for mobility as the condition progresses.

The HSP Research Program is led by 2017 Australian of the Year, Prof. Alan Mackay-Sim. Alan passionately supports the quest for an effective treatment, with promising results achieved to date. Pre-clinical investigations are continuing. An effective treatment for HSP is no longer out of reach.

The HSP Research Program is a great investment in the future of those with HSP, their families and loved ones and those children of tomorrow who are at risk of being born with HSP inherited from their parents.

We are an all-volunteer Foundation. 99 cents in every dollar you give goes directly to fund HSP research. Gifts of $2 or more are tax-deductible.

If you haven't given before, now is the time to start. Just $50, or $20, even $10 makes a difference.

Please give generously now!
