Elizabeth is the mom of Elliott, a 5 year old boy in South Carolina who has Homocystinuria. Elliott was diagnosed with HCU at age 2 after suffering from an unexplained illness and clotting in the brain, which left him fighting for his life. Upon receiving this diagnosis, Elizabeth found the HCU Network America online and immediately connected with other families living with HCU. Elizabeth says that the HCU Network America has been an invaluable resource and that the connections and relationships that her family has built through the network have been such a source of comfort and knowledge. Elizabeth hopes that by serving on the advisory council, she can help other families to make these connections and to help further the mission of the network.
