?? 2021 APF PET CALENDAR PHOTO CONTEST ??
It's that time again!! We had so much fun last time, we're doing it again!! Cannot wait to see everyone's pets- all pets welcome - Anyone can enter and it's free!!
This fundraising campaign will benefit the American Porphyria Foundation's Protect the Future Program. This program trains the next generation of Porphyria doctors, specialists and researchers. In the next decade we'll lose 90% of our specialists due to retirement, etc. This program ensures we not only preserve the knowledge we've already gained about this rare disease, but trains new doctors and researchers to make sure porphyria patients continue to have quality testing, diagnosis, treatment and ultimately a CURE!! ????????
