In our Dec. '90 issue of the Newsletter we announced the birth of Amamda McKnight, daughter of Lon & Sue Ann McKnight. Amanda's birth was a special medical event. Her mother, Sue Ann, has a type of classic MSUD. She was the first mother with MSUD to be reported in medical literature. Amanda was a full-term, healthy baby who attended kindergarten this past school term. She is a perfectly normal little girl. Amanda now has a brother, Blake.

Blake came early. He was 29 weeks premature and weighed only 1 lb. 4, oz. Born March 6, he came home from the hospital on May 29 weighing 3 lb. 15.8 oz. Sue Ann intends to write about her experience for the next issue of the Newsletter.

Congratulations Lon and Sue Ann. We are all eager to hear your experiences and how Blake is doing. May the Lord bless you all with health and happiness.


The MSUD Family Support Group is currently funding several research projects and we are proactively looking for researchers interested in developing new treatments or finding a cure for MSUD. Significant funding is necessary if we are to accomplish this goal.
