Our Mission

The Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome Association (CVSA) serves the needs of cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) sufferers, their families, and professional care givers by raising awareness and providing education and support to those affected by cyclic vomiting, abdominal migraine, and related disorders, while advocating for and funding research.

Established in 1993, CVSA has grown from a handful of interested parents and professionals into a network that includes over 40 medical advisors and volunteers serving in the U.S. and Canada, as well as over 30 other countries worldwide.

As an association, we have two primary objectives: to work toward a cure by supporting several promising research initiatives, and to assist our members by strengthening communications and offering a wide range of resources for their education and support.
