To immediately and effectively heighten awareness on the importance of comprehensive newborn screening and its availability and necessity for every newborn. Through this testing, when a child is diagnosed with a disorder, steps can be taken immediately to mitigate the problems that go along with these diseases;
To create, promote and facilitate legislation which will mandate this comprehensive newborn screening for all fifty states; and
To raise funds through promotional activities and sales to support children and families affected with GA1 and other OA’s (organic acidemia metabolic disorders) through the creation of provisional support programs, including food, vitamin and emotional support efforts. With the costs of all these important areas of treatment so exorbitant, it is imperative that insurance companies supply these families with supplements and support they need to live relatively normal lives.
We invite you to join us on our mission to provide food, vitamin and emotional support to families affected by Glutaric Aciduria Type 1 and other Organic Acidemias. Our site will allow you to learn more about GA-1, OAs and expanded newborn screening as well as learn how you can support BBAF and our Angels.
Who are the children that BBAF supports?
BBAF supports children with Glutaric Acidemia Type-1 (GA-1) and other Organic Acidemia (OAs) metabolic conditions.
