Since Tonya Hanson, the first known patient, was born in September of 1960, her parents and doctors have been trying to figure out the cause of her condition. Years later, her parents had a son, Cody, the second known patient, who presented the same ailments with very few answers. Until now, there has not been an abundance of information about CFZ.


Our mission is to provide proper understanding of the CFZ Syndrome, raise awareness, and be a resource for individuals, families, medical professionals, and anyone else affected by the CFZ Syndrome through research and education.
