Parents and Fabry

Parents of children affected by Fabry disease, a rare genetic disorder, share their stories about caring for a child with a chronic illness. Nephrologist Dr. David Warnock also provides insight on the importance caregivers play in helping family members with Fabry disease. Fabry disease is a multisystemic inherited disorder marked by the progressive cellular accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (GL-3). GL-3 build-up leads to potentially life-threatening symptoms of the kidney, heart and brain. Visit to learn more about Fabry disease.
