Margot James MP - new patron of FOP Action UK - promotes charity fundraising event at Oxford University.
Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) is an extremely rare and debilitating disease where bone forms in muscle, tendons and ligaments, resulting in the forming of a ‘second skeleton.’
As the new patron of FOP Action UK, Margot James MP is aiming to raise awareness of this condition and upcoming fundraising events, which includes an Oxford Ball to be held in Keble College, Oxford University on Saturday 8th September.
Due to the low profile nature and rarity of the disease, the research team based at Oxford University currently working towards clinical trials will be unable to continue their groundbreaking work unless FOP Action UK can raise the necessary funds.
If you would like to attend the Oxford Ball, more information and ticket prices can be found at http://oxford.friendsofoliver.com/.
Lastly, if you are in a position to make any kind of donation towards the important research going on at Oxford University, FOP Action would be indebted if you could make cheques payable to UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD, FOP RESEARCH FUND and post to Mr. Steven Bowden, University of Oxford Development Office, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.
