Braden's Love Some 1 With Glut 1

by Braden Shumbo

Supporting: Love Some1 with Glut1 2020 for Glut1 Deficiency Foundation


Campaign has ended.


Please show your support for Braden and all his Glut 1 friends fighting for a cure.

Braden is now a happy 15 years old. He works through his daily struggles in and out of school, and always with a smile. Braden strives to make others happy with his witty nature and comical ways, despite simple everyday tasks people take for granted like running, talking clearly, reading, writing, and just making friends. Braden enjoys antique collecting, playing his Nintendo,  swimming, basketball, and just hanging out with friends.

He was diagnosed with Glut 1 at age of 12 months and he has been on a strict medical diet his whole life, which has proven to dramatically improve his Glut 1 symptoms as well as his other Glut 1 peers.

Any amount is greatly appreciated. Thank you for always being so supportive to Braden and Glut 1.

Check out Braden in the below Glut 1 video at minute 6:45!

 Love: Braden, Kim, Steve and Sammy Shumbo

The Love Some1 with Glut1 annual campaign is the signature awareness and fundraising event for the Glut1 Deficiency Foundation, running from February 14-29, Valentine's Day through Rare Disease Day. It is an important opportunity to educate others and raise much-needed funds to help better serve the needs of our patient community through our mission programs for increased awareness, improved education, advocacy for patients and families, and support and funding for research.

Thank you for helping us reach our goal and supporting us as we continue our work to bring help and hope to everyone, everywhere, who is affected by Glut1.  You make our mission possible.
