Stop Autoimmunity Forever (SAF) is an organization dedicated to raising funds to support research necessary to cure autoimmune diseases. An autoimmune disease is a disease where the body’s immune system has rogue cells residing right along with good cells that attack healthy tissue instead of invaders.

All funds raised by SAF go directly to support the work of Dr. Denise Faustman of Massachusetts General Hospital who has cured Type 1 Diabetes in mice by stopping the autoimmune attack. We see Dr. Faustman’s work as our best hope for a real, and permanent, cure.

We could know in as little as six years if this will translate to humans, dependent upon available funding. So we need YOUR help.

This is revolutionary science we're talking about - history in the making. There's something bigger than us at work here. Please join us and be part of history!
