About The Conference

The Yaya Foundation is proud to be a sponsor of the ULF Conference, as well as to provide a 4HL specific agenda for this event. The ULF Family Conference is an annual event where affected families can access the world’s top leukodystrophy physicians and researchers – outside of the restrictions of insurance and the hospital setting. Held over two days, the Conference aims to provide the latest scientific information to keep families informed on advances in the field but also guide families on topics that will improve their overall quality of life while living with a leukodystrophy. The Conference is an invaluable experience geared toward the whole family: Affected individuals, parents and caregivers, spouses, siblings, extended family, friends, and anyone else in their support network.

Registration covers entry to the event whether virtual or in-person. For in-person attendees, the eight meals provided at the venue are also included in registration. Attendees are responsible for securing their hotel room(s) and making their own travel arrangements. Scholarships are available to families who are newly diagnosed or are in financial need.

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.
