My son was one of the millions of babies born every year with a serious genetic disease. I had no idea that I was a carrier for the disease, or that the sperm donor I chose was also a carrier. The disease risk was hidden inside our DNA – and that’s how most genetic diseases work.
It became a personal calling for me to help families identify, understand and manage genetic diseases, as soon as they learn about the risk or reality of a condition.
We created GenePeeks to address the urgent need for better genetic insight and to identify risk that can’t be seen through other methods.
We’re proud to be advancing the field of genetics, and we’re even prouder to be helping clinicians, parents, and parents-to-be make more informed healthcare decisions.
