Celebrating 30 years of supporting families affected by chronic granulomatous disorder


The 30th Anniversary is known in the anniversary world as the 'Pearl Anniversary'. Natural pearls are beautiful but scare jewels, just like our CGD community.

2021 marks 30 years of our charity providing information and support to individuals and families affected by Chronic Granulomatous Disorder. Starting from a small patient group back in 1991, our charity has evolved over the past 30 years - improving and adapting to the needs of our community.

This is a proud, momentous occasion for all of us at CGD and we will be sharing opportunities to take part in celebrations and fundraising opportunities through out the year, so keep watch on our social media platforms, website and our monthly e-news.

As part of our celebrations, we want to hear from you, our supporters both here in the UK and overseas, on how we have supported you. From using our informative website, contacting us through our helpline, financial support or information and support through our Clinical Nurse Specialist both past and present, we would love to hear from you.You could provide a small quote, a short video from your phone or share with us your CGD or carrier story.

Please contact Claire and Adelle on 0800 987 8988 or send us an email at We know that sharing with others helps with those feelings of isolation many feel when living with a rare condition. We look forward to hearing from you.
