Foundation that supports people diagnosed with Gyrate Atrophy.

We are a non profit organization with the purpose of giving support to people suffering from gyrate atrophy, sharing the hope of preserving vision. 

Our goal is to inform the family members about the disease and its treatment, make the medical community aware of the existence of gyrate atrophy, and obtain statistical information about gyrate atrophy in Mexico in order to encourage research about it.

What motivates us?

We know that living with Gyrate Atrophy is not easy; reading with magnifying glasses, carrying a lamp to see at night, not being able to drive, not being able to distinguish the faces of people in more than 3 meters from you; truly is a challenge of daily life.

Therefore, we are concerned that you have a monitoring of your disease, and that your visual quality does not continue deteriorating;  likewise, see the possibility that your entire body works in the right way.



We would like to recognize the great work that  conquering gyrateatrophy is doing by sharing with the world  more insights and research about this terrible disease
