The purpose of the Musette and Allen
Morgan, Jr. Foundation for the Study of Primary Sclerosing
Cholangitis is to sponsor and facilitate both basic and clinical
research to discover new treatments and ultimately a cure for
primary sclerosing cholangitis.
In 2004, Musette and Allen Morgan, Jr.
made a substantial gift to establish the Musette and Allen Morgan,
Jr. Foundation for the Study of PSC. Their son, Worth, was
diagnosed with the rare liver disease Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis
(PSC). The Morgans were concerned that there was a lack of
information about PSC, a lack of research and no consistency in
treatment. Often the treatment for this fatal disease was a
liver transplant. While children are waiting for a liver transplant,
they suffer with such symptoms as severe abdominal pain, jaundice,
weight loss and a profound lack of energy.
It is our hope that this Web site will
serve to educate, inform and aid those who are patients, family
members, researchers, physicians and organizations interested
in learning about and joining our cause to fight PSC.
