We at the G6PD Deficiency Foundation understand the importance of discovering and developing new forms of detection, prevention and treatments for G6PD deficient individuals. It is for this very reason that we take an integrative approach in pioneering projects and programs aimed at improving basic understanding of disease, and improving overall care for patients worldwide. We aim to collaborate with experts in many fields including internal medicine, academia, and community based hospitals to bring brilliant minds together to deliver the best possible care.

Brody's Battle

Brody’s Battle happened in the first ten days of his life and nearly ended it, leaving him with terrible brain damage caused by a condition called Kernicterus. Our foundation was started to spare other newborns such life-threatening events by raising awareness of how undiagnosed G6PD deficiency can cause Jaundice. A Kernicterus event can occur if neonatal Jaundice is not properly managed.
