welcome to The Metabolic Foundation.
Gemma & Adam are Husband and Wife who both were frantically searching for someone else who understood the term fatty oxidation disorder after Gemma being diagnosed in 2011 after the birth of their second son, admittedly it was a struggle. Hard to believe we had finally met a family……the Linford family from Yorkshire…. someone else within the same country!
As time passed and the more we chatted we became close, We eventually met face to face in December 2014 when we visited the houses of parliament to meet our local MPs and tried to fight for newborn screening.
This unfortunately did not get accepted but nevertheless we are proud of our efforts and now Gemma is a stakeholder.
Gemma & Adam have run a couple of fundraisers for other metabolic charities and thought the time was right to start helping others, as they would benefit from this so we decided to expand to do more to help others in the same situation as us.
please join us and support us into making that happen
We decided as Husband and wife to start The Metabolic Foundation.
