Today dwarfism-focused doctors and scientists are faced with serious funding and budget constraints.
With 20,000+ dwarfism families in the USA we can help our doctors. Imagine if each family touched by dwarfism raised only $40/month from friends and their surrounding schools, community and businesses. Together we can generate ~$10M/year in non-profit funding. Funding of this magnitude can propel the quality of medical care available to little people to new heights.
Please join us by becoming an ambassador and raise non-profit funds to help doctors and scientists helping us.
Example of Email You Can Send to Ask for Support
Increase awareness by asking friends and family for support!
For dwarfism awareness month please consider sending an email to your friends and family, asking for support. Asking for support helps increase awareness, motivates people to learn more and makes a lasting impression. Below is an email example that you may use to send to your contacts.
My (daughter, sister, friend, partner etc.) has dwarfism I am reaching out to give you information about dwarfism and to seek your support for http://www.growingstronger.org, an organization that supports medical research that benefits us and thousands others.
People with dwarfism, also known as little people, live fulfilling personal and professional lives. They are partners, husbands, wives, parents, grandparents and more. They pursue successful careers as teachers, doctors, lawyers, entertainers and more. Little people also participate in many competitive sports. The Flag bearer for the US 2012 Para Olympics team has dwarfism. Unfortunately, many little people experience discrimination and are called derogatory names. Your increased awareness about dwarfism will further little people's respectful inclusion in society.
A lesser known fact about dwarfism is that it is often accompanied by medical and orthopedic challenges. People with dwarfism typically undergo 3-15 surgical procedures through their life. Many children with dwarfism need to undergo multiple surgeries to relieve sleep apnea and spinal cord compression in the upper and lower spine, as well as procedures to reduce bowing at the knees.
