The C&S Patient Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the experiences and outcomes of Chiari and syringomyelia patients through education, awareness, and research.

Conquer Chiari is our informal name, our goal, and our website. Chiari and syringomyelia are complicated diseases, which require complex solutions. No single action will beat them, but the combined efforts of many people, on many fronts will. For far too long these diseases have destroyed people's lives, its time to fight back.

Education, awareness, and research are our weapons.
Compassion and conviction are our guides.
Strength, courage, and determination will sustain us.
We will win.
