A hero is defined as someone who shows great courage.

We consider the patients at the Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine heroes. They fight every single day, battling devastating diseases, ineffective or no treatments, and no answers. The Hero Fund has been established through the HudsonAlpha Foundation to help patients who cannot afford it get access to genomic medicine.


*In order to be considered for financial assistance, applicants must be
genomic medicine patients receiving whole genome sequencing as patients
of the Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine.
