Abby was diagnosed with Glut1 Deficiency Syndrome at 6 years of age. Her diagnosis & treatment have been life changing for her. Like other Glut1 patients, she has developed new challenges as she gets older. These would have been unexpected & more scary if we had not learned of these possible complications when we attended the biannual family conferences. We have made important connections with other Glut1 families through the Foundation. These connections are made possible because of donations which fund the family conferences. Abby is looking forward to seeing her Glut1 friends at the next conference in 2021. It’s important for her to spend time with other kids like her!
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.
