Welcome to the Canadian CMTC Foundation!

 "We know what we are but not what we may be"

We want to take a moment and thank you for connecting with us and to let you know that we are here to answer any questions you may have and offer you all the support you may need.  By going to our organization tab on the menu you can access our contact information.  We are always happy to hear from others within the CMTC-OVM family.

patient privacy is always at the forefront of everything that we do.  When we began this not for profit our main goal was only to be a resource for families in need.  We found ourselves with the birth of our daughter Ireland, navigating the rare disease world and being swallowed up by opinions and ideas that had nothing to do with the condition that she had been diagnosed with.  We thought we would do our part to help other families who found themselves in similar position not feel so alone and isolated and to help pave a path to the answers so desperately needed.  Along the way we have run in to many obstacles and successes, but one thing often reiterated is that families need a space safety, security and support.  Working with the United States CMTC organization we have developed just that and we would like any of our members who are are interested to please join us at anytime if they have questions or are looking for somewhere that they can interact with others in the same position navigating this same rare disease world. We welcome you at the ICE HUB!
