I was born in 1958 and was finally diagnosed at 2 years and 4 months in 1961 in Sydney Australia. In Perth W.A another person was being diagnosed at the same time as me small world isn't it. My life with PKU has been challenging at times but I couldn't imagine my life any other way. The goals I have acheived have been amazing and it is fun to keep on acheiving them. I have been fortunate to have some really wonderful friends in the medical profession such as Dr Koch, Virginia Schuett etc. I have spoken at a conference with Dr Koch, Willard Centerwall and Dr Christodoulou in 1999 at Sydney university. I will continue in living my dream.
