1. Debra Orem Debra Orem United States says:

    I have two grandsons that were born with SCID.  We did not know that my first grandson had it and he got very sick before he had a bone marrow transplant. We knew that my second grandson would have it so he got the transplant right away.  All states (including Maryland where I live) must have screening for this for every child at birth.
