NBS_Take_Action_Graphic_2
No state includes all potentially fatal, but treatable, diseases in its Newborn Screening Program. Currently, New York, Missouri, and Kentucky are the only states that screen newborns for Krabbe Disease.

With your help, we can save babies’
lives by ensuring that
Every Child. Every Time. Everywhere.™ is screened for every possible disease, including Krabbe, at birth.


Take Action to tell your state lawmakers why Expanded Newborn Screening should be a reality in all states.  Ask your friends, family - everyone you know to do the same. Be the voice for those who have none.

How Early Detection Saved Zoey and Michael's Lives

2014 Symposium_Michael Wilson and Zoey Moore
Michael and Zoey both received a tranplant for Krabbe Disease just after birth.  Their lives were saved because their older siblings were also affected by Krabbe Disease, giving them the chance for early detection and treatment that every child deserves.

By taking action in your state, you can help ensure that every child has the same chance at life as Zoey and Michael.
