"While the Initial Crisis Caused by the SARS-2 COVID-19 Virus Seems to Be on the Wane, the Long-haul Survivors of COVID are Just Beginning to Struggle With the Long-term Chronic Illnesses Caused by the Virus."
The COVID19 Long-hauler Research Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit corporation that is dedicated to helping people recover from the SARS-2 COVID-19 Virus. Governments and the press have focused almost all of their attention on the COVID-19 pandemic and the acute stage of this illness and mortality statistics. However, very little attention has been paid to the very large number of survivors of SARS-2 and the lasting long-term effects that they suffer from.
More than 70% of all COVID-19 patients studied at Stanford University reported having at least one “long haul” symptom that lasts for months or longer, including depression, shortness of breath and brain fog, dysautonomia, G.I. problems, hemorrhaging, blood clots, cardiomyopathies, organ failure, sensory abnormalities and sleep irregularities, among others. Currently there are over 100 reported long-haul illnesses associated with COVID survival and no one knows why they occur, how the body’s immune system causes damage nor how to treat them.
The Foundation was founded by a survivor of the COVID-19 virus who has developed many Long-haul illnesses and has found little help from the scientific or clinical community. Science and clinical care has not kept pace with the fallout from SARS-2 COVID-19.
The Mission of the Foundation is to bring together the millions of Long-haul Survivor to gather as much data as possible for the conduct of basic and clinical research to find answers for: how the virus causes such long-term and wide-spread damage; what are the best therapeutic treatment modalities to solve Long-haul complaints; and, to find cures for them.
