Together we can beat children's genetic diseases.
To make major improvements to children's health, medical research is imperative. There will be no treatments or cures unless we do the work to find them. Your donation will help the 12 kids born every minute around the world with a birth defect or genetic disease.
Your donation directly supports our research programs into cancer, genetic diseases, birth defects, and neurological conditions like epilepsy. We receive no guaranteed government funding. Our scientists rely on hard-won grants and community support to keep their research going. If the funding stops, so does the research. Your support helps transform discoveries into cures and treatments for children affected by serious conditions.
