I can only thank God and those responsible for their persistance in requiring NY State to have more comprehensive Newborn Screening. Our 7 month old daughter, Shawna Cummings, was diagnosed with MCADD when she was only 4 weeks old. After much denial, guilt and uplifting spirits of other we have accepted and have learned how to take every day as if it is the most special day ever. Shawna goes to a specialist every other month and we modify her diet. She is healthy and happy in every way. We realized that had we not discovered this so early we may have lost her forever. Her first episode was the first immunization shots she received. Due to the fact we knew how to treat her temperature and her burning up her glucose so quickly we were able to make it through the episode with no damage. I can only thank those of you responsible for saving my little girls life. Also I am writing a letter to send to all Congressman, newspapers, and magazines all over the country to help in Newborn Screening awareness. Thank to everyone.
