Why Donate?

We have been helping families since 1992 - 18 years!
Families coping with pediatric acid reflux are desperate for help. Thousands of parents from all over the world turn to www.reflux.org for information and support. We have trained volunteers who help by phone, e-mail and on the web site forums. Feel free to surf this site and see all of the great information. Glance in the Reading Room and see the hundreds of helpful documents. The forum has 100,000 messages!

Corporate Funding Can only Provide 66% of our Budget
The IRS rule says we have to match every $2 from a big donor or grant, with $1 from our members and their friends. Our goal is to raise $50,000 from our members.

Do we get government funding?
No. Patient groups don’t qualify for government funding
