12 Years of Changing Patients' Lives

Since our founding in 2007, Ben’s Friends has changed hundreds of thousands of lives. 

Forty-three online support communities have already been created for patients of different rare diseases and conditions like ataxia, dysautonomia, and fibromyalgia. 

Generous donors like you make all this possible. And on behalf of all the members of Ben’s Friends online communities, thank you!

Patients of these diseases and their families would otherwise have to deal with their conditions on their own--from endlessly researching answers to the millions of questions they have, to looking everywhere for trustworthy emotional support.

We are entirely dependent on support from our friends and family. Help us continue to provide warm and friendly online support communities for patients by giving what you can. 

$500 gives 5,000 patients the comfort they need whenever they feel lost and scared.

$200 brings hope to 2,000 patients when they’re about to give up .

$20 provides 200 patients an access to clinic and doctor recommendations so that they can get proper treatment.

Let’s keep on making a difference.
