The Elizabeth and Claire LaPlante Foundation supports two missions. The first is suicide prevention through an innovative approach to assessing and rapid medical treatment of the acutely suicidal patient. This will be accomplished in a new, in development center, in the Morgantown area. With the rapidily rising national suicide rate this treatment center will bring hope to thousands of desperate patients and families in their search for relief from the potentially devastating event.

The second mission supports education and new pathways for the rapid diagnosis and treatment of the potentially severe and even deadly acute Adenovirus infection. Left untreated Adenovirus can result in a rapid and overwhelming illness that can lead to long hospitalizations, ICU admissions and even death. The LaPlante foundation is committed to educating health care providers and developing new pathways for rapid assessment and treatment options for patients with this virus. No age group is spared in its potential for causing life threatening illness.

Please join the Elizabeth and Claire LaPlante Foundation by supporting these life saving missions.
