GDATF Website Update

July 16, 2021

The GDATF is in the process of upgrading our website, and we do not currently have donation functionality. (UPDATE: The online forum is back up!) Please bear with us during this transition - we can't wait for you to see our new site, which will feature an improved mobile experience and new accessibility options. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us via email at [email protected], by phone at 877-643-3123 (USA & Canada), on Facebook.com/GDATF (which includes our closed group), on Twitter at @GDATF, or on oneGRAVESvoice.com (a collaboration between GDATF, Horizon Therapeutics, and rareLife Solutions).
