A Shared Dream

In October 2010, three Canadian families affected by Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) sat around a dining room table with a shared dream – of a Canadian Foundation able to encourage education, foster research, and provide support to LDS patients and families. Less than a year later, in June 2011, their dream became a reality when LDSFC obtained its charitable status from the Canada Revenue Agency.

Today, over a decade later, we are proud to have made incredible progress towards our initial goals, as well as to have met and learned from exceptional people in the LDS community.
