“Suddenly we were part of a community of parents who had a ‘do what you can and do it now’ attitue” – Matt Hawkins

“Matt Hawinks and his wife Megan O’Neail, were living in the heart of midtown Toronto with their kids Dexter and Georgia, when on Valentine’s day 2008, their third child was born. But when little Chloe had feeding problems, Megan knew something was wrong. A battery of tests led to a diagnosis that the Hawkins had never hear of. Their daughter had Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS), a rare disorder characterized by low muscle tone, cognitive delay and most cruelly an insatiable appetite.” – Today’s Parent September 2010 Edition
