Episode 7 - The Mighty Mikaere


In today’s episode, we are sharing the story of Kai - a boy who is celebrating his first birthday during this month of October. In a conversation with his parents Sam and Elly, we learn about Kai’s diagnosis of non-ketotic hyperglycinemia (NKH), a rare metabolic disorder. The energy and spirit of this family is truly amazing and in this episode, our guests cover a lot of different angles… including discussing their strength while in intensive care and how their blog kept family and friends informed. Sam also gives an account of his three-day, 78-mile walk along the River Thames to raise awareness and the couple takes time in this conversation to describe Kai’s smile and laughter. 

We encourage you to visit TeamMikaere.com to learn more about his story and to donate toward NKH research! Also, for fans of The Baby Nation Show - please take a moment to leave a review on iTunes.
