Our Ethos

We are driven by the dream that one day, every child with 4H Leukodystrophy will have the chance to live a long, healthy life.

So we fight for these children by acting as a catalyst and a connector—bringing researchers together to accelerate the pace of discovery, while connecting families with vital education resources and emotional support.

We won’t stop until we find a treatment and, ultimately, a cure.
