Maverick’s Story

“We went from thinking our son was going to die, to getting a diagnosis and being so thankful for genomic sequencing and how it saved his life.” – Kara Coltrin, Maverick’s Mom

Sebastiana’s Story

When traditional tests failed to identify the source of Sebastiana’s seizures, she was referred for genomic sequencing. The results saved her life.

Dakota’s Story

On her first birthday, Dakota was lethargic, running a high fever and vomiting. As her condition worsened, she was rushed to Rady Children’s Hospital where she was quickly admitted to intensive care. Doctors there discovered her kidneys had stopped working but they didn’t know why. When routine tests failed to offer answers, rapid whole genome sequencing was ordered.
