The idea for KrabbeConnect originated from the 2015 Family Centered-Krabbe Translational Research Network meeting (FC-KTRN), a collaborative meeting between researchers and families to aid in solving the uncertainties of Krabbe disease. Through KrabbeConnect, the foundation provides a platform to amplify the voice of patients, aiding researchers and drug developers in accelerating research for better treatments for Krabbe disease.
KrabbeConnect’s dedication and efforts will advance research, provide family support, enhance education, and raise awareness, one step at a time. The organization will encourage patients, caregivers, medical scientists, clinicians, industry, and the government to work together quickly to assure a better life for patients. KrabbeConnect believes advances are made when we align ourselves with the same goal, improving the quality of life of those diagnosed with Krabbe disease.
