About the Hope For Holt Foundation

Our Purpose
We have created this website to raise awareness about this rare disease and help support the Cystinosis Research Foundation in hopes of finding a cure. Rare diseases have less awareness, therefore less funding. The only way real progress is made is through the private funding of research. Please find out how you can help make a difference in the lives of exceptional children and their families battling this incurable illness.

Non-profit Status
The Cystinosis Research Foundation is a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. 100% of all donations made to the CRF are used for research. All contributions are 100% tax deductible. Please check with your employer to see if they do employee matches.

We have partnered with the Cystinosis Research Foundation (www.natalieswish.org) to help fight this terrible disease. The work they have done and the money they have raised in such a short amount of time is truly amazing. 100% of all donations go directly to research - all of the overhead is completely underwritten.

The Foundation has created their own scientific review board and make sure that all monies raised are immediately put to work. They have already made significant strides and have tremendously improved the quality of life for the children with this disease. The life expectancy has nearly doubled in recent years due to some of their research. But there is still much work to be done and we need your help.

Research Progress
The Cystinosis Research Foundation's mission is two-fold and focused: to find better treatments and a cure for cystinosis. This past year has been one of new research developments and significant advancements in the treatment of cystinosis. A slow-release medication will be a reality in the near future, and scientists are only about 5 years away from clinical trials testing new therapies they believe and hope will lead to a cure for cystinosis.
