A diagnosis of a rare disease can change a family’s life. Our HCU Blue Bag seek to provide practical support to alleviate some of the emotional stress and isolation experienced by the individual and their families at the time of diagnosis.

We invite you to take a virtual look inside our Blue Bag. It is a toolkit full of resources for newly diagnosed individuals and their families. Email us if you haven’t received your Blue Bag at your Australian metabolic clinic.
