BBAF: July 2009 Angel

Simply faBOWlous® is proud to be an Angel Sponsor of the Bailey Baio Angel Foundation® (BBAF), started by Scott & Renee Baio.

Each month a special child with a metabolic disorder is chosen to be the foundation's Angel.

Angel for July 2009
This month's Angel is Maggie. Maggie is a precious little girl who was diagnosed with Isovaleric Acidemia, also known as IVA. Luckily it was detected at birth with newborn screening!
"She is growing and developing normally. I attribute all of this to Expanded newborn Screening. I often wish I could shake the hand of evryone who has made ENBS possible, and offer them my sincerest gratitude. Without them Maggies's story could have been very different." (Kamala, Maggie's mom)

Please take a moment to read Maggie's Full Story

The Mission
The foundation's goal is to gain awareness and help raise funds for expanded newborn screening, while also providing support to children & families that are coping with metabolic disorders...learn more about the BBAF!
