Help kids with rare and undiagnosed diseases

Do you hate waiting for answers? Could you live with a sense of suspense every day?

500,000 Australian children live with rare diseases. Like nine year old Lily, many thousands of them don’t even have a diagnosis. Every day is spent in constant uncertainty, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. Getting a diagnosis can take years, or, for some, simply not come at all. Every day is spent in suspense.

Project Y is a ground breaking initiative lead by WA’s very own Dr Gareth Baynam, bringing together specialist doctors to provide a diagnosis to inform treatment for a long list of rare and undiagnosed childhood diseases. This will deliver much-needed answers to so many WA children and their families, helping to put an end to the unbearable suspense.

You can help by supporting Dr Baynam’s critical work by making a donation today. To find out how to donate and to learn more, visit thesuspenseiskillingme.org and help improve the care of children with rare and undiagnosed diseases.
