This program works to help provide relief to Krabbe disease patients or caregivers/guardians of a Krabbe disease loved one enduring hardship or long hospital stay. KrabbeConnect is committed to helping relieve some anxiety, stress, and financial burden that can come from a medical crisis. If you are a direct caregiver/guardian of a Krabbe disease loved one or an adult with Krabbe disease who has been hospitalized for more than one week OR is experiencing other hardship financial situations, we invite you to complete the Hardship Assistance Program application. Please review the criteria below and continue on to the application form:
