Connecting with Parents and Growing a Stronger Community

“As parents of a son with achondroplasia, we recognize the profound importance of parent support groups. Understanding the sensitivity and isolation parents and caregivers may feel while seeking information on pharmaceutical research and treatment options for children with achondroplasia, Growing Stronger has developed groups to facilitate discussions on navigating treatments, providing emotional support, and, crucially, fostering a supportive community.” – Amer & Munira, Co-Founders of Growing Stronger


If you are a parent or caregiver to someone with achondroplasia, please join our ever growing community with nearly 1,500 members from all around the worldPhysicians, researchers, and anyone affiliated with pharmaceutical companies are prohibited from joining. All member requests are monitored.
