About the FAIR Foundation
After a second liver transplant and viewing an ABC network 20/20 segment entitled “Disease Politics,” FAIR founder Richard Darling felt it was time for a change in health policy and politic.
Darling felt everyone should be entitled to a chance to live undefined with an opportunity for a cure for their disease through a FAIR and equitable distribution of government research dollars; and FAIR and legal access to a transplant without discrimination and without sacrificing their life to a “TRANSPLANT WAITING LIST” due to the shortage of organs. (A US patient dies every 48 minutes due to the shortage of organs for transplant undefined http://optn.transplant.hrsa.gov/latestData).
The FAIR Foundation was named PRO-RATE NIH initially in 2002 in but the name of the organization was changed to the FAIR (Fair Allocations In Reseach) Foundation in 2007.
The FAIR Foundation Mission
2) Our Liver Disease & Transplant Support Group provides referral for transplant and educational/emotional support for patients in the Coachella Valley area of Southern California.3) Change current government spending of research dollars to a FAIR and equitable distribution of bio-medical research funds by our government for all diseases.
Our goal is to change the current budgeting system to one that takes into consideration the incidence, mortality, suffering, morbidity, communicability and preventability of each disease. Diseases that are presently under-funded will receive increased funding and others that are over-funded will receive fewer allocations. See FAIR's recommended research allocation policies.
