Pets are an important part of our lives, especially those of us dealing with the difficulties of Porphyria and other illnesses as well as this crazy COVID year. This calendar is a fun way to honor the unconditional love our pets show us and how they help us through the "ruff" times while raising awareness and fundraising to Protect the Future of our experts and in turn our lives!!

The Protect the Future campaign was established to attract and train the next generation of doctors and specialists in the field of Porphyria. Past generations of men and women have led Porphyria research, testing and treatment for the last 30 years. Without financial support, we run the risk of losing knowledge of the disease, quality testing, diagnosis and treatment, and ultimately - a cure.
