Bailey Baio Angel: September 2009

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 September 2009
This month's Angel is Bridie. Bridie is a 14 year old who lives in England and has overcome many challenges. At the age of 4 months her parents began noticing her struggling with many developmental milestones. After months of doctors visits and testing, Bridie was diagnosised with a rare disorder called Glutaric Aciduria Type 1. Newborn screening in England does not include screening for GA 1 and many other organic acidemias. "Through it all, Bridie's amazing spirit and happiness has always shined brightly"

Please take a moment to read Bridie's full story
