The goal of the MRSA Foundation is to increase awareness of 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 its severity. Although MRSA may appear benign, the visible symptoms are merely a façade of a much bigger, deadlier problem.
Each year, over 18,000 people die of this condition, and the number is rising. This bacteria’s resistance to medicine makes it difficult to treat; and because it is often misdiagnosed, it is equally difficult to prevent. Our foundation has learned copious amounts of information about this disease over the past five 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 to cure 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 doing solid 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 research though, we need money. Understandably, there are many worthy non-profits vying for your dovations. 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 are a 501(c)(3) non-profit. 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 core; 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.
Thank you for your time, and stay connected to us for updates!
