Our Mission

The mission of the GFPD is to fund and promote peroxisome disorder research and to empower families and professionals through educational programs and support services related to Zellweger spectrum disorders.

Our Work

Through these connections with medical and scientific professionals and family support networks, our foundation is a resource for families who have received a diagnosis of a peroxisomal disorder in the Zellweger spectrum

Our History

In the days before the GFPD was founded, families were just beginning to use the Internet to connect, discovering that other families like theirs were out there. John Harris moderated a website and an email list-serve for families
