09/01/05 14:58:00 - About this site...here. Aren's story has been similar, but we're praying that with this bone marrow transplant his story will be much longer and have a happier ending :)
Lily was diagnosed with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency. Aren has always been much healthier than Lily ever was, so they basically left off the word "Severe" in his diagnosis. It is still a serious problem, and it has been estimated that 1 in 1,000 children have some sort of immune deficiency (although SCID afflicts only about 1 in 100,000). For more information see some of these links:
The SCID Homepage
KidsHealth.org Article on SCID
National Institues of Health Article (pretty technical)
