Scott and Renee Baio were filled with joy when their daughter Bailey was born. But they were to receive difficult news that tempered the joy there were feeling. Shortly after her birth, Bailey tested positive for a metabolic disorder known as GA 1. For 10 weeks the family struggled with the impact of this diagnosis. And then upon later testing, Bailey was cleared. She’d had a false positive. She did not have the disorder.
Scott and Renee were thrilled, so thankful for this miracle. But they realized that most families in their position are not so lucky. They couldn’t just move on and forget what they had been through. It is their wish to support children and families affected with GA1 and other OA’s (organic acidemia metabolic disorders) So the couple vowed to do what they could to heighten awareness on the importance of expanded newborn screening and its availability and necessity for every newborn. This is what drove them to form the Bailey Baio Angel Foundation.
