By becoming an Organizational Sponsor and offering your financial support to GAPS, you are providing hope and resources necessary to improve the quality of life for these brave members of our community as they battle against this disease.
All money raised stays in this community to offer education, support, and advocacy to our members, their spouses, families, and caregivers.
