To help patients like Jim, please support HudsonAlpha’s Hero Fund.

We opened the Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine, which uses genomic sequencing to diagnose patients with rare undiagnosed diseases. The Clinic was opened in collaboration with Children’s of Alabama and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Although genomic sequencing is a comprehensive test, we understand that it isn’t often covered by insurance and patients may have difficulty paying for it.

This is why we’ve established the Hero Fund. Through the Hero Fund, qualified clinic patients are able to get the genetic and genomic tests they need without the financial burden.

One patient, in particular, is Jim Wall. Jim spent 20 years without a correct diagnosis until he visited the clinic and qualified for the Hero Fund. Check out his story here.
