“Our rare patient story starts at the end of October 2019 when our second born Morgan was born and finding out five days later from her newborn screening she had Phenylketonuria (PKU).
We learned at a lot about PKU during those first two years, but during end of those two years we got pregnant. We didn’t get tested to see if our last baby would have PKU because we had a 1 in 4 chance the next one would have. Then in October of 2021, Maddison was born and five days later we got that same call to find out she had Phenylketonuria as well.
These two girls share such a special bond. They are not only sisters but they share same disease. Seeing them go through everyday challenges is so amazing.
I can’t wait to see how they will grow and become each others advocate.”
