Awareness

CanPKU believes that creating awareness around Homocystinuria (HCU) and other rare diseases helps patients…Because Knowledge Leads to Better Health.

When people are aware of a condition, they are more likely to be understanding and supportive.  This might be as simple as ensuring that there are appropriate food choices at the next party your child attends, or it might mean that a politician will fight on your behalf for coverage of treatments.

Riding for a Cause - (Clipped from the article) At 3 months old, freshman Carson Hunt was diagnosed with Homocystinuria (HCU) Cobalamin G (CBLG), a rare genetic disorder. This disorder has caused Hunt’s levels of the amino acid homocysteine to increase far beyond a typical amount, which has led to blindness, developmental delays and may pose other potential health issues in his future. In order to help other families dealing with HCU, Dana helped create the HCU Race for Research in 2019 to raise funds for researching the rare conditionThe Race for Research will take place throughout the entire month of September. During this month, Hunt will be riding his bike 100 miles to help raise money to donate.
