Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Gaucher Community Alliance (GCA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for the patient community by the patient community. Our mission is to support patients with Gaucher disease and their families through peer-to-peer support and education, advocacy, patient and family resources, and networking. Increased collaboration and emotional support among patients living with all types of Gaucher disease may alleviate some of the burden associated with this rare disorder.


GCA’s primary goals are to educate and support. Through mutual self help and peer-to-peer connections, the GCA wants to ensure that no families shall face this disease alone. As Gaucher community needs arise, the GCA shall advocate and work with patients to meet the ever-changing struggles and needs facing this rare disease community. Through patient collaboration, the GCA will help all those affected live their fullest life.
