Martinez Foundation Mission

Manuela Martinez Foundation for Children with Metabolic Diseases has been created for the research, diagnosis and treatment of children with peroxisomal disorders and other lipid diseases.

Very often parents feel lost because they cannot find anyone who will tell them what their children suffer from. Even if a diagnosis is made, information on therapy is often fractional and discordant. Some doctors even tell the parents that there is nothing that can alleviate their children’s plight. This is not true.

Even now, there is much that can be done to improve the lives of these children. In the near future, research may find new treatments to improve patients even more. The need to continue the research and care of these affected children is tremendous. This is the primary purpose of the Manuela Martinez Foundation for Children with Metabolic Diseases.
