Newborn Screening

Knowledge is power! My son passed away from a rare neurologic disease, and when my daughter was tested at birth, we learned she had the same condition her brother was born with. Thanks to newborn screening, my daughter was able to receive treatment in her first month to stabilize the disease and have a much greater quality of life. Early interventions save lives.
