About

Spastic Paraplegia Foundation

The Spastic Paraplegia Foundation, Inc. (SPF) is the only organization in the Americas dedicated to finding a cure for two rare diseases, Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP) and Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS). We are a not-for-profit all volunteer organization.

Our primary goal has been to raise money to find a cure for HSP and PLS. Since our creation in 2002, we have raised and funded over $10 million in research grants. We have little overhead and last year 93% of the donations we received went towards research grants.
