No matter what brought you here to this family registration page or where you are at in your child’s or your own diagnosis of a Leukodystrophy, we are here to help and support you! The ultimate goal of Hunter's Hope Foundation is to find a cure for Krabbe disease and other leukodystrophies. We hope you will join the Hunter's Hope family in achieving this goal. With your help, by registering yourself or your affected family member we will be able to prove higher prevalences of these diseases to assist us in our fight for Expanded & Universal Newborn Screening.
Registration is easy and quick to complete. Thank you for joining us in this fight and welcome to our family!
Once you become a registered family, we encourage you to tell your Family’s story. With your permission, we would welcome the opportunity to feature your family and your personal story on the families section of our website. Tell your story and impact those who have shared in your family’s battle with Krabbe or other Leukodystrophy disease.
