Reviews for National Urea Cycle Disorders Foundation
I first heard about NUCDF 12 years ago when my son was diagnosed with a different rare disorder that also has hyperammonemia. The executive director was very helpful in explaining hyperammonemia to me and sending us in the right direction. A couple years later, I started a non-profit with other families for my son's disorder. NUCDF has mentored our organization and partnered with us on a number of projects. I am thankful for their advice, support, partnership and friendship. I am a more informed parent as well as a better leader because of NUCDF and would recommend them for 2012 Top-Rated Awards.
