Dear Foregen Supporters,
Welcome back to our most recent newsletter. We're kicking off August with a generous donation for over $500, and we have some important updates for you with an overview of the best parts of July.
What’s Happened Since Last Time?
- Over the next few months we will be planning our presence at conferences in São Paulo, Brazil and Hamburg, Germany. We are continuing our talks with various organizations we met at Knowledge for Growth in Ghent, Belgium.
- The collection and testing of tissue is an ongoing process and we will send out updates from our tissue supplier as we get them. In addition, Foregen is currently working to acquire additional sources globally for a more adequate and steady supply.
- For the month of July reached a total of $10,190 in donations, which helps us move forward with the next parts of our mission! Be sure to inform other activists, friends and family about Foregen and the science we’re pursuing to one day help provide genital integrity to men around the world. Our overall total to date is $483,188 - Let’s keep it up.
Tell Me Something Interesting
- Foregen and our mission was recently featured in an article in Patheos stating “Foreskin art is the latest weapon against infant circumcision”, in light of the HuFo exhibit in Philadelphia.
- A recent article from NPR discusses a development where “For the first time, doctors in the U.S. have used the powerful gene-editing technique CRISPR to try to treat a patient with a genetic disorder. ‘It is just amazing how far things have come," says Victoria Gray, 34, of Forest, Miss. "It is wonderful," she told NPR in an exclusive interview after undergoing the landmark treatment for sickle cell disease. Gray is the first patient ever to be publicly identified as being involved in a study testing the use of CRISPR for a genetic disease.
