Today is our daughter's fourth birthday. Unfortunately like Alexis she is not here to celebrate because of MCADD. Since Jenna's death I have been working to raise awareness of the occurance of inheritable disorders like MCADD and the benefits of early detection via newborn screening.
I am pleased to advise that the Ontario goverment has decided to expand the provinces newborn screening program to 27 disorders including MCADD. It is a shame our children have had to pay such a high price!!!!!!!!
