Magic Foundation changes my world. My son was born at 28 weeks at 1 lb. 14oz. He was 3% on the growth charts and not catching up. My pediatrician said he was "on his own growth curve". Fortunately, I discovered Magic Foundation one night at 2am as I was desparately looking for answers. As a result, I knew to contact a pediatric endocrinologist and our lives changed. Our son Jarod went from 3% at age 5 to 50th % on the growth charts in 3 years as a result of needing growth hormone injections. This affected other areas as well including immunity, muscle tone, eating, and development. Magic also answered insurance questions that we had. I am so grateful and thankful that I discovered Magic.

Our son Mason was born in November, 2011. No indications were given throughout the full term of pregnancy that any issues were prevalent. After delivery, Mason had difficulty breathing and was in Pediatric ICU for several days. After several tests it was determined that Mason was suffering from multiple abnormalities, one being congenital Panhypopituitarism. All of these thrust upon us a young couple with no indication of any issues along the term of the pregnancy is quite overwhelming. It requires a very quick lesson in medical terms, medical conditions, multiple doctors’ visits, administering medication, giving Mason daily shots, physical therapy, and educated family and our self’s. Struggles for our family are the rarity of PHP and information that is not available, The MAGIC Foundation was one place I turned to. I’m so thankful they are here.

When our son was born with a very rare disease we had nowhere to turn for support. When we found MAGIC, this all changed. The MAGIC Foundation has been there for us for the past 22 years. We attend their convention every single year. MAGIC is amazing!
