CARES Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization based in the USA that leads in the effort to improve the lives of the Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) community and seeks to advance quality health care. CARES through support, advocacy, education, and research represents nearly 8,000 affected individuals, families, and healthcare professionals in the United States and more than 70 countries.
CARES provides access to expert care in CAH, with physician referrals, an ASK THE EXPERT online service, and eight CARES-designated centers of excellence for CAH across the United States. We provide many types of patient, caregiver, and family support, as well as a variety of educational opportunities. We advocate for treatment options, patients’ rights and awareness programs for CAH, a rare, genetic disorder. CARES supports research for quality treatment, medication, and ultimately a cure. As we enter our 3rd decade of service to the CAH community, we continue to improve and save lives.
