ABOUT US

Sebby and our Founders

Anna Pak Poy & Marc Coupar's son, Sebby, was diagnosed with Tay-Sachs in December 2017, at 7 months old. Sebby sadly passed away in March 2019 at 22 months old. Sebby is a sparkly, charismatic treasure who continues to inspire many with his spirit and courage - most of all his parents, who established Rare Find Foundation.

The focus of the foundation is to support those affected and their families, support research, establish a disease registry, create awareness, improve clinical care and promote screening.
