GBS/CIDP Foundation International

About GBS/CIDP Foundation International

The GBS/CIDP Foundation International is a non-profit organization committed to supporting all those affected by Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), or related syndromes. Patients, family members, friend, and caregivers can get information on diagnosis, proper treatment, support, and recovery.


The GBS|CIDP Foundation International contacted us in 2012 when their online donations stopped working on their existing site. The site was becoming inconsistent and difficult to manage. The Foundation was also running a large community forum that was crashing and riddled with spam.


A crucial issue for a nonprofit organization, YIKES, Inc. identified the issue and created a solution to get the website connected properly to a payment gateway and allow users to once again donate to the foundation.  We laid out a plan to keep the current site running while redesigning and redeveloping two new websites, one for the main Foundation and one for the community support forums. Since 2012, YIKES has worked with The GBS|CIDP Foundation International to integrate their Salesforce API for lead-to-web forms, accept research grant applications, and more.

We love collaborating with the team at The GBS|CIDP Foundation International. They are committed and enthusiastic to provide as much support and as many resources as possible to help all those affected GBS, CIDP and related syndromes.
