Help Undiagnosed Children Foundation

About 350 million people throughout the world have rare and genetic diseases. Some 30 million people in the United States alone have rare and genetic diseases, and about half of those affected are children. The Help Undiagnosed Children Foundation (HUCF) was established in 2015 with the mission to help sick children without a diagnosis to obtain one, so they can receive the appropriate medical treatment. Unfortunately, diagnosis is often beyond the reach of these kids who may have complicated and novel genetic diseases, or for kids whose families do not have the resources or medical insurance to cover the cost of genetic testing, which can cost thousands of dollars. This is where the Help Undiagnosed Children Foundation can help; by providing funding to pay for the genetic testing.

Dr. Wenhui Laura Li is the founder of the Help Undiagnosed Children Foundation. She is a board certified clinical molecular geneticist who has headed the genomic laboratory at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles as well as the clinical service laboratory at Illumina in San Diego, California. Dr. Li is passionate about using innovative genomic technology for specialized genetic testing to help these children to obtain the correct medical diagnosis and then the care they need, which improves the quality of their lives, so they have a chance to smile, and run and jump and play again.

Dr. Li established the Help Undiagnosed Children Foundation as a 501 (c) (3), non-profit entity.
