Greater Cincinnati PKU Walk-A-Thon

Thursday, May 29, 2008

If you are looking for something to do this Saturday, please check out the Greater Cincinnati PKU Walk-A-Thon. My friend S's son has PKU, so I've gotten a small glimpse at how this rare but very serious disorder can affect the entire family. More research into a cure is desperately needed, but research can't happen without public support and lots and lots of money.
