The Prader-Willi Syndrome Association of Colorado (PWSACO) is committed to improving the quality of life and the life expectancy of those affected by Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS), by providing emotional support, social services or care for individuals with PWS. We will work to increase awareness of PWS within society and the medical community, and will actively support research directed at improving diagnosis, quality of life, and most importantly, finding a cure.
It takes a village
We assist families with grants to cover costs of medical treatments, travel to conferences, social work, etc.
An innovative space providing care for complex needs
We provide funds and volunteers for the PWS Multidisciplinary Clinic at the Children’s Hospital of Colorado
Committed to finding a cure
We are dedicated to support the research projects through the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research (www.fpwr.org)
Living an Independent Life
One of our current goals at PWSACO is to help improve long term care for PWS adults in Colorado.
Ensuring equal rights and representation
To ensure individuals with PWS and disability issues are represented to the state, federal and local governments, including school systems. Recently we had a great victory with the State of Colorado recognizing PWS as a disability and consequently ensuring families receive adequate support.
