Alagille Syndrome Alliance (ALGSA) is a 501c3 nonprofit for those living and dealing with Alagille Syndrome (ALGS). ALGS is a very complex genetic disorder that affects some to all the organ systems. Classified as a rare cholestatic liver disease, this syndrome affects one out of 30,000 live births. Many individuals with ALGS face liver and/or kidney disease, heart abnormalities, transplants, other invasive surgeries, and a variety of health conditions associated with ALGS. Alagille Syndrome has a wide spectrum of severity from very mild to fatal, each person having a unique version.
Burden of disease for ALGS can be very heavy and so the ALGSA supports families in many ways including meaningful family programs like disease education, financial assistance, support pages, a holiday adoption program, and more. The ALGSA also has a large presence in ALGS science, working to support scientific understanding and advancements in research to find better treatments and one day, the cure.
