The FH Foundation is on a missions dedicated to education, advocacy, and research of all forms of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH).

Our Corporate Sponsors are supporting the FH Foundation in its efforts to raise awareness and save lives of those with FH.  Their contributions help fund programs, which encourage and advocate for increased knowledge of FH, earlier diagnosis, optimum treatment, and enhanced scientific understanding of this disease.





CASCADE FH stands for CAscade SCreening for Awareness and DEtection of Familial Hypercholesterolemia. This nationwide patient registry is a uniquely designed database, which collects information on patients with FH via two pathways. The clinician portal allows healthcare providers to enter clinical information on individuals affected by FH, while the patient portal allows patients to enter information about their experience with this disease. This hybrid model allows for the gaining of insight into disease patterns, therapy trends, and quality of life. The collected data (secure, HIPAA-compliant and de-identified) enables scientific research of FH, which translates into better care and improved health outcomes.
