Tom Hawkins is an HCU Dad, with two children (Virgil & Annie) that have HCU and a third child (Charlie) that is HCU-free. Tom & Kristen had never heard of HCU but learned they were both carriers when Virgil's diagnosis was caught via newborn screening. With both Virgil and Annie being diagnosed from birth, they have luckily been on a steady diet of HCU Early Years and HCU Next and gladly drink their "milk" every day. The Hawkins family resides in Park Ridge, IL; Tom works as an M&A business consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
