Patient story

Ellis’ story

 “Ellis was just four days old when we got a phone call from the geneticist. She explained to us that Ellis’s test for PKU had come up positive. We make sure to eat as normal as we can. We’re really proud of that, of making sure her food looks like our foods – so that PKU doesn’t define her, she’s so much more than that.

We love to be a part of the PKU community, showing others a success story, how as a family we’re no different, we experience life just the same.”
