Jessy Widmer

My name is Jessy Widmer, and my son Elijah was born in 2012. At 7 days old he was diagnosed with PKU. Just like most of us, I had never heard of PKU prior to that initial office visit. I knew immediately that I needed to be involved in the pku community. I joined MACPAD as a member, because I wanted to meet other families with similar experiences. I quickly realized that I enjoyed helping plan the activities for everyone to participate in, and eventually I started working with new families. I became a board member in 2016, and I am really enjoying this experience! 

In 2015 we welcomed our daughter, Carly. To our surprise, she does not have pku. This has been a learning experience as well! When she first started eating solid food we called our dietician because we didn't know what to feed her!
Pku has changed my families life in ways I couldn't have imagined. I feel honored to be on the board of MACPAD, and now, represent MACPAD on the NPKUA board.
