I urgently urge your support for to add severe combined immunodeficiency to the Virginia panel of screened disorders at the recommendation of the Virginia Genetics Advisory Committee. If newborn babies are screened for SCID, diagnosed and treated within 4 months, there is a 94% chance that those babies will be able to live normal, healthy and productive lives. So please give these lives a chance.
