Please add SCID Newborn Screening to the routine testing done in the state of Virginia for infants. Having watched a wonderful family go through the agony and grief of losing a 5 month old son to this disease, I would like the state to add this regulation so that this preventable and potentially fatal illness doesn't strike another family just beginning to enjoy their time with a new life. Preventing this for more families would be a fitting tribute to little Hayes..
