    Hello! I’m Maria and I live in Oporto, Portugal.
    I decide sign up because i’m very interested in this disease and I appreciated a lot if I could contact with people who suffers with it.
    I don’t have PKU, but, i’m working in a project about it since 2007.
    I’ve already contact many professionals in differente areas like nutrition, pharmaceutical, genetical… I also have contacted professionals in USA
    In Portugal we have an association that help the people who have PKU called APOFEN and we have a excelent Newborn Screening test program and great doctors!
    Best regards and I wish you very luck.
    (I’m sorry if I had a “poor english” )

    Hi Breanna!
    First of all I have to say that I felt very happy when I saw your message, and thank you for your help very much.
    I took a look at your profile and I have to confess that I appreciated a lot when I see that you want to be a medical geneticist.
    So, I would feel very grateful if you can give to me a short testimony about your experience with this disorder.
    Unfortnaly, in Portugal many pacients don’t like to talk about their disorder.
