I became involved with the Barth Syndrome Foundation when I attended their first meeting in 2000. What a long way they have come in just 12 years! They provide substantial support for research aimed at understanding the condition, they provide amazing support to the affected and their families, they host biennial Family and Scientific conferences, there is a web site full of information, a listserv for families and another one for doctors and scientists, there are volunteer experts that can be consulted, families can exchange experiences and advice regarding this variable disease -- and there is the welcoming warmth, the belonging to a superfamily, the link across oceans and continents. In short, BSF is wonderful!
