    The Morgellons Research Foundation (MRF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, dedicated to raising awareness and research funding for a newly emerging infectious disease, which we refer to as "Morgellons disease." The disease can be disfiguring and disabling, and it affects people of all age groups, including children. Multiple family members are often affected at the same time, and the disease appears to be spreading at an alarming rate. The number of families currently registered with the MRF is believed to represent a fraction of the true number of affected families. Because the disease is not yet recognized by the medical community, as in the case of many newly emerging diseases, patients' symptoms are often dismissed as psychological by health care practitioners
