Many of us are inspired by someone in our community who is living with a painful, disabling or terminal disease. At the ARM Foundation, we know that these diseases affect people living with debilitating or life-threatening symptoms, and significantly impact their families and caregivers.
We have learned that families, caregivers, patient organization leaders, and other advocates seek information about cell and gene medicines, and that is why we have created the Healing Genes website. We want you to know about understanding cell and gene medicine.
Cell and gene medicines have potential to benefit millions of these families, many currently without adequate treatment options. Unfortunately, patient access to these transformative therapies will not happen as quickly as we’d like until cell and gene medicine is better understood and patients are comfortable exploring these technologies as potential treatment options.
Cell and gene medicine will achieve its vast potential only when the public, patients, and caregivers understand and accept it as a safe and effective therapeutic option.
