February is Ectodermal Dysplasias Awareness Month. It’s a perfect opportunity to take action for the NFED family. Check out these ideas for easy ways to fundraise and make a difference.
Dr. Albert Guckes: A Dentist With a Big Heart
Back in the 1980s, a prosthodontist named Dr. Albert D. Guckes became interested in the ectodermal dysplasias. He speculated that dental implants might be a viable treatment for affected adults who were missing teeth. His landmark study would impact generations to come with what they learned. We not only thank Dr. Guckes for this study but for what he did for the next three decades to help our families.
This is a Family Affair
Nikko is a lucky little boy whose family has rallied around him with love and support. Grandpa David and uncle Paul headed off to an NFED Family Conference in search of answers. They found those…and so much more. Find out what they learned and how they are giving back.
Help Us Crush Our 2019 Goals
You can help us crush our 2019 goals. Do you want to be a monster or a mummy? Want to bid on some great prizes? Or, could you make a few clicks to advocate for our important bill? We are looking for volunteers to help with all of these to improve lives for the ectodermal dysplasias community.

You can donate to the NFED through the United Way or the Combined Federal Campaign. Learn how to double your donation through a matching gift.
Why Volunteering Can Change Your Life
Volunteering for the NFED gives you the opportunity to meet and help others with ectodermal dysplasias. But, you are the one who may benefit most. Learn more and sign up today.
We thank our hard-working volunteers for the hours they so generously dedicated to the 2019 NFED Family Conference. Without them, this event would not be possible.
What A Difference I Can Make
Your life can take a different path, one you never expected in a matter of a moment. Debbie’s changed when her first grandson was born. Little did she know on that day she would become a volunteer for the NFED.
