The Canadian Families with Galactosemia is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide support and networking opportunities for families of children with galactosemia. Galactosemia is a rare, hereditary disorder of carbohydrate metabolism that affects the body’s ability to convert galactose (a sugar contained in milk, including human mother’s milk) to glucose (a different type of sugar). Because milk is the staple of an infant's diet, early diagnosis and treatment of this disorder is essential to avoid serious lifelong disability.
