We need babies to be scanned at birth to detect rare and hidden conditions and to potentially treat these conditions and to save lives.

A family member had an AVM (arteriovenous malformation) and was successfully treated at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow and the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh.

All babies are a treasure and must be treated as such.

Having a genetic condition myself that I didn't know about until my 20s I think it's important to know these things a lot sooner. I probably still wouldn't know about my condition had it not been for a professor from London doing genetic tests on my whole family 30 years ago. We need more testing in younger years.
