MPS Society anniversary awards

May 2017 is the 35th Anniversary of the founding of the Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases. To celebrate this milestone the Board of Trustees will at the MPS Gala Dinner at the conference on Saturday 8 July 2017 be recognising family members of the MPS Society who have shown ‘Courage over Adversity’.

The recipients of these awards will have demonstrated how they have used their personal experience of MPS, Fabry or a related lysosomal storage disease to not only meet the challenge of MPS but build on their experience to benefit the wider community including the MPS Society.

If you know someone who has shown ‘Courage over Adversity’ and is worthy of an award you can nominate them in the following categories:

Members of the MPS Society who are:

  • Adults (18 years and over) living with MPS, Fabry or a related Lysosomal disease
  • Parents whose child (of any age) is living with MPS, Fabry or a related Lysosomal disease or has died from MPS, Fabry or a related Lysosomal disease

Non-members who are:

  • Grandparents whose grandchild(ren) (of any age) is living with MPS, Fabry or a related Lysosomal disease or has died from MPS, Fabry or a related Lysosomal disease
  • Young people (13–17 year) living with MPS, Fabry or a related Lysosomal disease
  • Siblings (13 years and over) whose brother(s) and or sister(s) have or have lost their life to MPS, Fabry or a related Lysosomal disease
