Millie Rickards

Millie Rickards
Millie was diagnosed with MCADD following her newborn screening test in December 2014. As we
approach her first birthday, the initial shock had subsided and we are able to appreciate that
her first year has gone well. We have tried to give Millie the same experiences as her older
brother, Max. This has included baby sensory, twisting tots, playgroups and swimming lessons,
all of which Millie has really enjoyed. This inspired us to do our first Metabolic Support UK fundraising
event: “Millie and Friends Sponsored Swim”, raising £1,620. The response and support was
phenomenal and a positive experience for all of the family. We then decided to open a
Galaxy Tribute Fund, to celebrate Millie’s first birthday; to thank Metabolic Support UK for their support; and to
encourage us to continue fundraising. Millie and Max will be working hard to reach the target.
