Petition Fund FOP Research at Oxford University
FOP turns otherwise healthy people into human statues - a healthy mind locked inside a frozen body.
One of the rarest genetic conditions, affecting roughly one in two million, there is very little commercial interest in a cure.
This means public funding is the only real hope for children with FOP and we ask that the Government funds research at Oxford University.
Every day, otherwise healthy children take a step closer to becoming human statues, so we urge you to act quickly.
FOP research also benefits common disorders such as osteoporosis, hip replacement surgery and many common military injuries.
