Focus 2021: Advancing Coats' Disease Research & Awareness

You can make an Impact!

Your support will help propel us forward in the fight against Coats' Disease. The Jack McGovern Coats' Disease Foundation is the LEADER in advancing research into Coats' Disease. We are an organization with lean operating costs so your contributions will make a direct impact.

What are you supporting?

We are looking ahead to raise the following for 2021:

  • $10,000 to Promote Early Diagnosis of Coats' Disease within the medical community. Efforts will include physician outreach to educate and support early diagnosis, as well as increasing visibility and underwriting important pediatric and retina meetings in 2021. You can donate in honor of your Coats' physician!

  • $10,000 to Fund a Researcher. These researcher travel grants allow junior researchers to attend 2021 retina meetings where they will learn about cutting edge research on Coats’ Disease. The experience inspired one past recipient to select Coats’ Disease as her research focus, which is exactly our goal!
  • $10,000 to Support our Online Presence, providing critical resources for Coats' Disease patients & families, such as the Doctor Directory of physicians who specialize in Coats' Disease.
