    Organizer

    Canadian MPS Society

    Support for Families. Research for a Cure.

    Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) and mucolipidosis (ML) are genetic lysosomal storage diseases (LSD) caused by the body’s inability to produce specific enzymes. The missing or insufficient enzyme prevents cells from recycling waste, resulting in the storage of materials in cells throughout the body. As the disease progresses, there is widespread damage throughout the body, including the heart, bones, joints, respiratory system and central nervous system, leading to a shortened lifespan.

    When families learn that their child has been diagnosed with MPS or a related lysosomal starage disease, that may potentially take their child’s life, it places on them a heavy emotional, physical and financial burden that few can relate to or understand. 

    The Canadian MPS Society helps ease the burden by directing families to important sources of information, research and medical help, and by connecting them with other families experiencing similar situations to expand their network of support. We also provide financial support to families through our Family Assistance Program—to date, we have funded over $100,000 in grants to offset the many costs incurred with a diagnosis.  We make sure families know that we’re there for them, to help them focus on their children..

    It’s hope that keeps families pushing on during those difficult days. Hope of treatment, hope of a better day, hope that their child will live a bright and fulfilling future.
