Our Story

FSIG was started in 1996 as a “kitchen table” support group

formed by two Fabry patients and a supportive family member with the hope that their particular understanding of this disease, combined with experience at gathering information and working with doctors could benefit others. FSIG is a continually growing and expanding organization constantly looking for new opportunities to assist in improving patient’s lives.
