Jacob is a 13-year-old boy who loves sports, particularly hockey and baseball. He was born with a rare, incurable genetic disease called Creatine Transporter Deficiency (CTD), which impairs his brain from properly developing or functioning.

He was diagnosed at the age of nine, after almost a decade of tests, procedures and misdiagnoses. Jacob is not the only one affected by this, and he certainly won't be the last. We need your help to fund more medical and research initiatives for creatine deficiencies to be better diagnosed and treated.
