Too Rare To Care @ newborn screening for glutaric aciduria type 1

This is a petition to the Irish Government to add Glutaric Aciduria Type 1 to the list of newborn screening as this is a rare life threatening metabolic disorder. My son Liam has Brain Damage and struggles everyday due to this metabolic disorder that went undiagnosed until he suffered a crisis which changed my 3 month old baby boy from able to disabled overnight !!! This could have been avoided if his disorder Glutaric Aciduria Type 1 was screened for on newborn screening just like most other countries !!! Ireland and Cyprus dont screen for GA1 ... So please please sign this petition so i can hand it to our government and make them hear us !!! The next child diagnosed with this will also be disabled or dead because it wont be caught at birth and treated ... this can really make a difference and even if it only saves the life of just 1 child, 1 family that will make it worth it and that will be a change !!! please sign this in support of Liam and what should have helped him to live without a disability !!! please share and thank you so much @
