Rethinking “rare” disease.

With more than 6,000 rare diseases affecting over 20 million Americans, chances are you know someone with a rare disease.3.

80 percent
of rare diseases are genetic3.

1 out of every 2
people diagnosed with rare disease is a child4.

is the average time it takes to receive a diagnosis5.

Early genomic screening in childhood can transform the way rare genetic conditions are managed and have a profound and lasting impact on health.

WHAT IS NURTURE?

More than just a test.

Too often, genetic conditions in children are misdiagnosed or diagnosed late, costing precious time for effective treatment. Nurture combines comprehensive genomic sequencing and support to identify conditions early — when intervention matters most — and offers a clear view of the road ahead.

The Test: Whole genome sequencing for 400+ actionable, childhood-onset genetic conditions

The Support: Genetic counseling + care plans + accelerated access to specialists

The Future: Ongoing support for a year + continued access to your child’s genomic profile

A smartphone displays a sample positive test result and a prompt to connect with a genetic counselor.

Understanding
your results.

Nurture’s genetic counselors are an integral part of our service. They help you learn about genetic conditions, their causes, and their impact.

Genetic counselors are available before, during, and after your test to answer questions and provide support.

You’ll receive an easy-to-understand Patient Guide that walks you through results provided by the lab.

With your consent, results are sent to your pediatrician and genetic counselors are available for consultation.

Wilson’s Disease

Wilson's Disease is one of the 413 genetic conditions Nurture screens for. This genetic disorder prevents the body from removing copper and can be a progressive form of liver failure. Wilson's Disease affects one out of every 30,000 infants. It is difficult to diagnose, but easy to treat when identified early.

Knowledge = Power.
Early knowledge = Priceless.

See Our List of 413 Conditions

Challenging to Diagnose

Wilson's disease is present at birth, but is unknown until copper builds up in the liver, brain, or other organs and initiates symptoms. Symptoms vary and can include fatigue, jaundice, and fluid buildup.

  • Most people are diagnosed between 5 and 35 years old.
  • Neurological complications may cause developmental delay.
  • Liver transplant may be necessary.

Knowing early changes everything

  • Genomic sequencing alerts you to the risk.
  • Nurture provides you and your pediatrician with guidance.
  • Nurture recommends specialists for care.
  • Once diagnosed, the right treatment is initiated early.
  • Developmental delay and transplant avoided.
