We are glad you took time to visit our website. Our goal is to increase awareness, funding, and preventative care for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). If you have been following this disease or have been affected by it, you are already aware of the severity of it. Although MRSA may appear benign on the skin, the symptoms are merely a façade of a much bigger, deadlier problem that lies just beneath the epidermis.
Each year, over 18,000 people die of this condition and the number is rising. Because of this bacteria’s resistance to medicine, it is difficult to treat successfully. Furthermore because this bacterium is often misdiagnosed, it is equally difficult to prevent. Our foundation has learned copious amounts of information about this disease over the past three years and hopes to use this information to educate and aid people suffering from MRSA and MRSA-related infections.
The MRSA foundation has two major goals as a non-profit foundation: to increase awareness of MRSA and MRSA-related infections and to fund public and private research initiatives that are actively seeking a cure to MRSA. “Actively seeking a cure” does not, in our opinion, mean loosely interpreting medical science to increase sales of one’s own product, rather it means to be doing good medical research at a sound institution with the goal of producing knowledge or medicine to help people whose lives may be in danger. Under our about us page, you can see how we evaluate the research initiative we sponsor.
In order to sponsor others though, we need money. Understandably the economy is bad, times are tough, and there are many worthy non-profits vying for your cash. However, we here at MRSA Foundation are transparent with how we use your money, we require no minimum donation, we do not discriminate based on amount, and we are proud to say that we have applied and are awaiting IRS approval on our 501(c)(3) status. If you or somebody you love has been affected by MRSA, we encourage you to help in whatever way you can. If money is best for you, click “Donate” above, but if there are other ways you would like to help, please send us an email so we can work together.
This foundation is not about “raising money,” at its heart, it is about curing the disorder. We aim to fund further research, campaign for awareness of MRSA, and help those afflicted with the disease through the healing process. Lofty goals? Perhaps. But somebody needs to step up to the plate.
Thank you for your time, and stay connected to us for updates!
