It Ain’t No Miracle, But Free Tests for CGD Will Make You Smile

I am jumping for joy after learning there’s new hope for people in the CGD community!

In October 2015, Horizon Pharma, headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, announced they will be opening their deep pockets to help people living with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD).

CGD is a rare genetic disorder that prevents the immune system from working properly. As a result, the disease leads to acute infections, which can result in death. What’s so frustrating about CGD is that all too frequently, the symptoms of sufferers go undetected, while in other instances, people are misdiagnosed.

So when Horizon Pharma made their announcement, people in the CGD community took notice.

Today, right now, if you suspect that you or your child or loved one may have symptoms of CGD, all you have to do is simply ask your doctor to contact Horizon’s support services called COMPASS, to determine if you or your loved ones can qualify for diagnostic testing and financial assistance.

It’s as simple as that! The process is made relatively easy by Horizon’s caring service team. Remember: It doesn’t matter what kind of insurance you have—or even if you don’t have insurance! Just make the call and you’ll be happy that you did! Be prepared to smile and know that others are there to help you and your loved ones get the assistance you need.
