Nathaniel, was born with Glut1 Deficiency Syndrome back in 1991, when it was virtually unheard of, especially in the UK. Since then, and because of the continued work of this wonderful foundation, many babies are being diagnosed early on and therefore given the best help possible at this crucial time. 


My boy wasn't diagnosed until he was 12 but despite his many problems he is otherwise healthy, happy and brings joy to all who know him. 


His absolute hero is Buzz Lightyear..... To Infinity and Beyond!!


Thank you all x

Each year, from Valentine's Day to Rare Disease Day, the Glut1 Deficiency Foundation hosts the Love Some1 with Glut1 campaignIt is an important opportunity to increase awareness and educate others about this rare disease while raising essential funds to help better serve the needs of our patient community through our mission programs.


In addition to our regular activities, we are working on some big and important goals for 2022

  • host our 9th family conference to bring families together to meet, share, and learn 
  • host our 2nd scientific convening for researchers and clinicians to exchange knowledge and ideas 
  • launch our Research Roundtable program to build a collaborative research network 
  • begin implementing and funding our newly developed patient-led Research Compass
  • launch a natural history study to better understand life-long patient experiences
  • expand our educational exhibits to reach and teach new audiences of medical professionals
  • create a new website to serve as a hub for information, support, connection, and hope


All of this year's campaign donations will be used to drive research progress and provide funding for projects in our new Research Compass.

Thank you for your part in helping us reach our goals and supporting our mission as we continue our work to bring help and hope to everyone, everywhere, who is affected by Glut1.
