My daughter was diagnosed with a rare disease by Heym in 09. He has been responsible for increasing treatment dosage and checking her blood work to make sure treatment was working properly. He has always told us that her blood work looked great and everything was as it should be. Over the summer we found out that was not true. My daughter was receiving HALF of the correct dose for several years. This caused major damage to her bones that required her to have a very extensive and painful surgery.
