Hello everyone, My name is Patrick and I am new to this group. I am 44 years old and I have classical PKU. I live in Phillipsburg, New Jersey and I have never met anyone who has PKU, so I am looking to meet someone with PKU who I could identify with and make friends with. I lived in New Jersey all my life but I wanted to move to Pennsylvania for most of my life but was told that if I don’t have health insurance in New Jersey my Phenayl aid drink and my Kuvan wouldn’t be covered so I would have to work in New Jersey or live there as well. Looking forward to connecting with some of you. It is really nice to finally find some people out there who I can identify with and even learn from. I am married with three beautiful children. Two boys and a baby girl. I am the only one in the family with PKU. I hope to hear from you all soon. God bless….
