Funding research fuels Vivian's hope

Supporting: Love Some1 with Glut1 2020 for Glut1 Deficiency Foundation


Campaign has ended.


We know we ask every year for your donations. Every dollar directly helps the possibility for a cure for GLUT1. 

Over 12 years ago when Vivian was diagnosed I was filled with hope that by the time Vivian was an adult there would be a cure for GLUT1.  Then the lack of research made it apparent we were years if not decades from that cure being a reality. 

Since 2011, when the G1D Foundation was founded, donations like yours have directly funded $689,000 in research! You're helping all our dreams of a cure get closer and closer!  Additionally, your donations helped fund a full time employee who travels the world teaching medical professionals about GLUT1 which helps kids get diagnosed easier. This employee also got our foundation a grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Foundation Rare as One project! 

ANY amount helps!

Thank you all for your generosity! The G1D Foundation is an excellent steward of the money you donate. 

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.
