The Daily News in Longview, Washington, published an article on Jay Hegstad and his family today. The story, “Rare condition poses daily challenge for Longview boy, mom” does a good job of  describing some of the challenges facing families of children with MECP2 duplication syndrome, and especially the additional challenges of single parenting. This article includes a couple of nice pictures of Jay and his mom (NOTE: You have to click on the image tab, near the top of the story to see the second picture).
