Congenital Hyperinsulinism is complicated. It can be hard to diagnose, hard to treat, and even harder to live with. I'm raising funds for research to improve the lives of everyone living with HI today and in the future. 

I know how difficult living with and managing congenital hyperinsulinism (HI) is, so I have joined Team CHIbra to raise funds for HI research again this year. Research is essential for advancing the understanding of HI, improving diagnosis and treatment options, and ultimately enhancing the quality of life for babies, children, and adults living with this complex rare disease.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism (HI) is a life-threatening disorder that causes dangerously low blood sugar levels. Prolonged or severe low blood sugar can cause seizures, brain damage, and even death. The consequences of HI are preventable; however, HI is often overlooked, misdiagnosed, or even when detected, mistreated.

Team CHIbra is raising these funds as part of the Million Dollar Bike Ride initiative, a project of the Orphan Disease Center of the University of Pennsylvania, our partner in funding research - who will be matching the first $30,000 of our donations!
