Our Mission

We seek to promote connection and education on the Morquio syndrome, as well as specific issues the community wishes to address. Through meeting one another, developing friendships, and engaging with the medical community, it is our hope that we can draw strength in our union and develop a voice to improve our social as well as physical well being.

What do we offer?

The Morquio Community can serve many different purposes, depending on what you are looking for. We work to circulate information and provide educational opportunities, but more simply, we also seek to make connections and grow community.


We have a listserv and community meetings to help folks connect and share and build relationships.


Members of this community include top doctors who offer updates on research and best practices.


Take comfort knowing that you have a diverse group of people with similar experiences supporting you.

This community is maintained by all involved; but there is a small team of people working behind the scenes to grease the wheels and keep things running smoothly.
