Helping Families Reach the Destination on Their Diagnostic Odyssey

Our Mission

Universal access to clinical genetic testing

We help families reach the destination on their diagnostic odyssey.


Our Process

Qualified medical professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area apply for funding on behalf of their patients. Application requirements include provider information, patient identifiers, proof of insurance denial, and requested genetic test/lab details. Little Zebra Fund then pays the genetic testing lab directly.


Our Story

This non-profit organization was created by two physicians who were inspired to resolve a health inequity. As geneticists, Dr. Ruzhnikov & Dr. Foskett specialize in making rare diagnoses, most commonly among pediatric patients, when the more common diagnoses have been ruled out.
