Hi. I am Alyssa. The only thing that makes me different than most other young ladies is a disease called methylmalonic acidemia or MMA, for short. I was fortunate to be diagnosed with MMA (Mut 0) before I was born.
Putting my disease aside, I have lots of family and friends and a terrific fur babies.
I am currently pursuing training for a career as a certified dietician and have a minor in Children and Youth Services.
Alyssa is truly a blessing in our lives. Through the loss of our son to MMA, we know how devastating the consequences of this disease can be. While caring for a child with MMA has extremely stressful moments, we try to put those times behind us as quickly as possible and attempt to lead "normal" lives. God has a purpose in all that he does. We just pray that he will guide us in fulfilling his purpose for us. If any one would like to contact us, please do not hesitate to email us at email@example.com. We would be happy to answer your questions.
Bonnie and Denny
