Today, I’m thrilled to share that our community is growing as our partnership with Vibe Bio officially launches to form New Hope Therapeutics – our joint company dedicated to pursuing a treatment for Lafora disease.
I first learned about Vibe Bio and its cofounder Alok Tayi through a mutual contact, and after hearing about Vibe Bio’s vision to build a new way to fund cures to rare diseases like ours, I felt hope. I have been blown away by how involved Vibe Bio wants to be in helping us to pursue a treatment for Lafora.
Vibe Bio’s mission is to find a cure for every community. They partner with patient advocacy organizations to fund treatments for rare diseases overlooked by the current drug development process. They know that the biggest obstacle to treating patients with rare diseases isn’t finding cures — it’s funding them. And they’re tackling that issue by raising new capital through cryptocurrency token sales that patient communities can put towards the treatments you need.
They’re also building a community of patients (like ours), scientists, and partners to ensure that no patient community is left to pursue a treatment alone. They connect our members to key resources and each other so that you have the support and expertise you need to navigate the drug development process.
Alongside Vibe Bio, we are launching New Hope Therapeutics to give patients with Lafora disease and other rare conditions access to the funding and community support they need to develop cures and ownership over the results.
Vibe Bio would appreciate any support you can offer to amplify news of our launch on social media. You can find sample posts for LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook here.
