who we are
who is the pheo para alliance?
Our mission is to empower patients with pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma, their families and medical professionals through advocacy, education and a global community of support, while helping to advance research that accelerates treatments and cures.
Founded in 2007, the Pheo Para Alliance is the longest-standing internationally recognized leader in advocacy for, and awareness of, pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma. Since our inception, the Pheo Para Alliance has dedicated more than $2 million towards research, diagnosis, education, advocacy, and finding a cure. In August of 2017, we consolidated our power and influence by merging with a partner group: The Pheo Para Troopers. The strong, patient-centered focus that has made the Pheo Para Troopers a household name within the pheo/para community, and the research and education strengths of the Pheo Para Alliance were combined. The emergent Pheo Para Alliance has become a true union of forces working with a common mission.
The Pheo Para Alliance is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, incorporated in the state of Virginia.
