Put here for traffic is also in chat.
A gorgeous little boy in my area was diagnosed with krabbe's disease at 6 months old, he's now 11 months old and two days ago went into a hospice.
A petition has been set up and to make a difference 100000 signitures are needed.
Krabbes disease could be screened for during the heel prick test and treated if caught before the symptoms appear. It is currently not screened for in the UK. Neither are over 50 other disorders that could be screened for.

The UK currently screen for 9 disorders. Other European countries screen for up to 29 and American States screen for 31 to 60. The UK is so far behind and our children have and will continue to suffer because of it.
So please please please could you sign the petition so hopefully another family don't have to go through this thanks.

It's not my son, it's a little boy in my area and his parents set the petition up to try and stop other family's going through similar

gemand3 have you contacted the local media (only with the consent of the family of course!)? They would help to publicise the petition for you and you'd have greater chance of it being picked up by the national media then too.

Hi aplaceinthewinter I know the local radio station has picked it up not to sure if any press have been contacted I know a certain morning tv programme had been contacted but they weren't interested hmm
Everyone local are tweeting and Facebook and getting everyone to share im just trying to help a little by putting it on here
