FOP Friends
FOP Friends is a charity set up to help those affected by FOP. Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) is one of the rarest and most disabling genetic conditions known to medicine, causing bone to form in muscles and other connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments turning otherwise healthy people into human statues. A healthy mind locked inside a frozen body. The condition is so rare (1 in 2,000,000) that little commercial interest exists in finding a cure so Oliver and his friends need your help. Please be a FOP Friend by supporting our charity.

Hello and thank you for visiting Isla's page.

I am the proud mummy of Isla, at 3months old (March 2014) our beautiful princess was diagnosed with FOP (Fibrodsyplacia Ossificans Progressiva)

FOP is one of the rarest and most disabling genetic conditions known to medicine. FOP progressively forms a second skeleton that imprisons the body in bone. FOP turns otherwise healthy people like Isla into human statues; a healthy mind locked inside a frozen body.

Our world fell apart when we found out Isla had FOP but thankfully the UK charity, FOP Friends were there for us from the start and we soon learnt that a cure is looking hopeful within Isla's lifetime. The donations you make will be used to make this hope a reality.

Please help spread the word to raise these much needed funds.

Thank you so much,

Nicky xx
