Many people who you know may have been diagnosed with a pituitary or related disorder. These could include family members, friends, colleagues, or even yourself. There are also an unknown number of people who don’t know they have a pituitary disorder. People with this enduring disorder face a lifetime of struggle with the associated physical, mental, social, family and financial challenges. The challenges of getting diagnosed, treated and managing a pituitary illness are compounded by a complex and disconnected healthcare system.
CPPN’s goals are to improve the quality of life experienced by pituitary and adrenal patients, and their caregivers, by advocating for improvements for early diagnosis, healthcare delivery, therapies, and ongoing support. We will do this by supporting the initiatives and development of regional patient support groups across Canada; by promoting research and clinical trials; by raising public awareness and education; by bringing the patient voice to important regional, national and international regulatory discussions and by supporting positive value-based outcomes in the delivery of healthcare.
We strive to provide social connections and opportunities that can make a difference in the lives of patients and caregivers. The Board of Directors consist of volunteers who provide governance and administration. More volunteers are needed to help achieve our goals and carry out our developing projects.
Your financial support helps us pay for our minimal operating expenses and by supporting our education initiatives and events, allowing us to expand our reach to help you or those you know with a pituitary or other related disorder to live fulfilling lives.
