A Message from David A. Heaps

Founder, Patient

The stories all sound the same when the diagnose is given, "You have Hypophosphatasia." On March 23, 2012 after 2 years of searching, I too was told I have Hypophosphatasia, a rare bone disease with no treatment or cure.

I made the decision then, to devote the remainder of my life to fighting this terrible disease. At that time I had no idea how I could make a difference. I just knew I could never give up.

Making a difference started with creating the HPP-Choose Hope Foundation. While our family was honored to help bring it to life, today it is sustained because of you, our friends who stand with us in defeating this disease.

Our mission of hope is to raise funds for research to find a treatment and cure and to improve the lives of those it affects, while educating Physicians and families about HPP.

Ultimately, it is our mission to relieve suffering and to support the emotional well-being of your family, and to be your strongest ally in your fight against Hypophosphatasia.

We need your help to find the cure for tomorrow’s HPP patients and the treatment for today’s. So please join us, and help us, help you.
