Health Scare: Readers Respond to Tay-Sachs Article

Plus, excitement abounds when Hollywood steps onto the Malvern stage.


Tay-Sachs and the Irish Community This article brought me back to a very dark chapter in our lives. Our firstborn son was not achieving the milestone infant activities; he never rolled over, never sat up. When he was 6 months old, we began our journey from doctor to doctor. By the time he was 9 months, we were told the horrendous news: Our son, Scotty, had gangliosidosis, a fatal disease that is very similar to Tay-Sachs.

Scotty lived in a vegetative state until he was 1 year and 3 months. Long story short: I’m glad that there were late-term abortions available, but so much happier that I didn’t have to have one. The next two pregnancies brought us a girl and a boy. Our family was complete.

Go see The Cherry Orchard. It’s beautifully performed by McDonnell, Olivia Mell, David Strathairn, and the amazingly talented resident company.
