Our goals to change the lives of those touched by Harlequins Ichthyosis:


Research into cause & prevention

We generate funds for research into Harlequin Ichthyosis – improving the mortality prospects for babies born with the condition, and quality of life for those living with it.


Providing support to those affected

We help to connect individuals and families affected by Harlequin Ichthyosis, and try to make a difference to their lives.


Raise awareness & inform the public
