THE STORY:

Less than 1 year ago my family and I had no idea what Galactosemia even was, but that all changed when our beautiful daughter, Whitley, was born with this rare genetic disease. Galactosemia is a rare metabolic disorder that affects one's ability to metabolize galactose. Galactose is in an variety of different foods and food groups, causing potential long-term complications if the diet is not strictly monitored and followed. Some complications include cataracts, speech disorders, learning disabilities, and even ovarian failure in females. Currently, there is no cure for this rare disease. Since finding out about Whitley's diagnoses, my family and I are dedicated to raising money in order to support research efforts and awareness for this rare disorder. Please consider donating to the cause that is so close to our heart. All money donated by you will go directly to the Galactosemia Foundation. Every little bit helps and we appreciate whatever you may be able to give. Thank you so much for your support and for taking time to read our story. For more information on Galactosemia and the Galactosemia Foundation, please visit http://www.galactosemia.org/.
