The GCA’s primary goals are to educate and support. We believe that through mutual self-help and peer-to-peer connections, we can ensure that no family faces this disease alone. We believe that getting the community together through events, projects, and programs, we can engage those from the patient community who have expertise and past experience in a vast array of issues and share that with others so we can all get though this together. We can advocate and work together to meet the ever-changing struggles and needs facing this rare disease community. Through patient and family collaboration, the GCA will help all those affected live their fullest life.
