ABOUT SCF

We find HOPE a HOME.

We are a non-profit organization focused on providing clinical care and aid to patients affected with XDP. We also fund and promote scientific research on the brain, on understanding other neurodegenerative diseases, and finding the cure for XDP through the Collaborative Center for XDP (CCXDP) at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Dr. Patrick Acuña, Vice President of SCF, is also an XDP patient, and he is the reason that the foundation was established, with efforts not only focused on finding a cure for XDP but also optimizing patient- centered care clinics.

For over three years, the foundation has grown from providing free medical care to organizing medical missions, counseling patients and their families and providing livelihood programs to XDP patients. To date, we have about 200 patients and we are still actively reaching out to those who might have the disease.

Unlocking the mysteries of the brain is the final frontier of knowledge. It will help us understand not only who we are but also how we engage with others and the world in which we live.
