Take the Pledge to RUN

RUN stands for Rare & Undiagnosed Network. We're a group of advocates, patients, families, researchers, and healthcare providers who share the same mission and vision:
 
To empower rare and undiagnosed patients and their families with genomic information and community through advocacy, networking and support.
 
Nearly 1 in 10 of your friends, family, and colleagues are living with a rare or undiagnosed disease – half are children.
Join the RUN community and change everything.

To All Mothers, Fathers, & Loved Ones

I am Gina Szajnuk and I am a mother of three young children – each of whom have been diagnosed with an unknown genetic dysfunction: an autonomic neuropathy.
 
I am determined to help my children and the children of all mothers living in a diagnostic odyssey. Join me on RUN's mission to set a new standard of care for all other families by making whole genome sequencing available through insurance.
 
Together, we can help families emotionally and financially living with an undiagnosed child, or a child with a rare condition.
