Dear Foregen Supporters,
Welcome back to our most recent newsletter. We have some important updates for you, and an overview of the best parts of April.
What’s Happened Since Last Time
- We have a new podcast release for all of you that you can watch here! In this episode Jordan discusses different topics with Foregen volunteer Nathanael Hadjadaj, Translation Officer and Lead Moderator.
- We are forming a team of artists to produce professional quality materials, including video animations and anatomical imagery (including vector graphics). If you are interested in volunteering and believe you may have skills to contribute, please fill out our survey here.
- Our friend Brendon Marotta also released a Kickstarter update, recently stating that their tour has concluded and that it went amazing! The DVD, Blu-Ray, and digital release of the film will take place on August 31st, 2018.
- For the month of April we reached a total of $9,309 in donations, which helps us move forward with the next parts of our mission! Tell other activists about Foregen and the science we’re researching to help restore genital integrity to men around the world. Our overall total to date is $312,622 - Let’s keep it up.
Tell Me Something Interesting
- In case you missed it, an impressive development happened with a recent penis transplant for a war veteran. “The surgery involved reconnecting three arteries, four veins and two nerves. Doctors expect that feeling will return to the transplanted organ in about six months, and at that point they will know more about the degree to which the man's sexual function has been restored [...] ‘The patient, who requested anonymity, is expected to be released from the hospital later this week, "and we are optimistic that he will regain near-normal urinary and sexual functions following full recovery," Dr. W.P. Andrew Lee said at a news conference announcing the surgery on Monday.’
- An article profiling scientist Eric Olson from UT Southwestern, who “citing techniques created in his USTW lab, [...] went on to obtain $40 million in venture capital funding and last year co-founded a biotechnology firm based in Boston called Exonics. That company is pursuing more widespread use of the treatments for Duchenne and related conditions.”
