Be Rare with Finn — Jay Sandstrom

Jay Sandstrom and his wife, Dani, have two children, Jackson and Finley. Finley was diagnosed with Alagille syndrome as an infant. Since that moment, Jay and Dani have worked to spread awareness about Alagille syndrome and provide a resource for newly diagnosed families that they wish they’d had access to. Through his column, “Be Rare with Finn,” Jay hopes to show that while being a caregiver for a child with a rare genetic disease comes with its challenges, it also brings many opportunities for celebration. Jay aims to provide a glimpse into what living with Alagille syndrome looks like for his son Finley and their family.
