The Chandler Project (TCP) is a patient-focused organization that advocates for individuals with achondroplasia (and other skeletal dysplasias) and their families by bringing awareness to research and advancements surrounding pharmaceutical and surgical treatment options for the condition(s).
TCP was founded in 2018 by Chandler Crews, an individual living with achondroplasia. She was inspired to start the patient-focused organization due to the lack of compassion within the skeletal dysplasia community when it came to seeking information pertaining to research and developments surrounding treatment, both pharmaceutical and surgical, for achondroplasia which is a life-altering and life-threatening condition.
TCP is a safe space for advocacy and community and a resource for research and development education for patients, parents, and caregivers of individuals with achondroplasia and other skeletal dysplasias.
Since 2019, TCP has hosted the only event in North America that brings together patients, parents, caregivers, physicians, researchers, industry professionals, and biotech + pharmaceutical companies to discuss the latest research and advancements surrounding pharmaceutical and surgical treatment options.
