To gather information about the medical conditions and disorders experienced by those living with BCCNS; to share this information with clinics and health care providers treating patients with BCCNS and other similar disorders; and to undertake a collaborative approach to the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and cure of the disorders encompassed by BCCNS.
To provide a supportive environment for families seeking treatment for their children and other family members, and to train physicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers to communicate more effectively with BCCNS patients and their families, as well as other similarly affected populations.
