National Porphyria Awareness Week (NPAW) begins this Saturday, April 16th!

NPAW is the time of year that APF members spread porphyria awareness throughout their communities. It isn't too late for the APF to provide materials for your NPAW activity. We will also help you promote your event! ANY activity you partake in is important. It can be as simple as sharing a photo of you (or your beloved pet) wearing an APF t-shirt or headband!

The APF Pet Beauty Contest has been a huge hit and we want to make sure it ends with a bang! You have until Saturday, April 16th (the start of NPAW) to vote for your favorite pet. Votes are $1 each. You may view all the entries on the APF website. Below each entry is a direct link to their individual online voting page. Be sure to support your pet!

Louise Schlosser will be hosting a patient meeting THIS Saturday to kick-off awareness week!
