Anniversary Celebration

Celebrating 20 Years of Service

Twenty years ago, APFED was launched to support patients and families living with eosinophil-associated diseases through education, awareness, advocacy, and research.

APFED is a partnership that brings together patients, families, researchers, healthcare providers, and stakeholders. You are the reason we are celebrating two decades of progress this year!

Join us as we celebrate this special milestone together!

Progress Toward Goal

Updated August 1, 2021:

Thanks to a generous donor, we have already surpassed our original $50,000 goal for our Heroes Bring HOPE Challenge! To date, we have raised over $77,000 and that’s only through July!

Thank you to all our generous supporters! Let’s raise the bar to $100,000 so that we can help fund a second research initiative. Together, we can bring HOPE to those with eosinophil-associated diseases!
