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.
