Elijah's Hope is a non-profit organisation aimed at bringing together families affected by the rare disease, Apert Syndrome.
This site will collate information about Apert syndrome and hopefully, as time goes on, become a repository of knowledge for both families and practitioners.
If you would like to be able to view our current medical articles that we have already gathered, you will need to join, which is FREE. It's a simple sign up that will give you full access to the site. You can do so here.
