Meet Caroline: 2017 Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero

Caroline was diagnosed with the rare genetic disease Isovaleric Acidemia before birth and that diagnosis was confirmed shortly after at Children’s National Health System. Her early diagnosis came thanks to the knowledge learned from her big brother’s delayed diagnosis, which was too late to prevent a devastating brain injury.

Her early diagnosis has enabled the medical experts in the genetics division to carefully manage her rare disorder enabling her to live a normal, healthy life.
