Powering Through Pompe
— Keara Engle


Keara Engle is located in south-central Pennsylvania and has lived there her whole life. Keara is a single mother and has two little boys, Cayden and Kyree. Her oldest, Cayden, was born in February 2018 and was diagnosed with infantile-onset Pompe disease shortly after. He was the first baby in Pennsylvania diagnosed via newborn screening. She hopes that her column, “Powering Through Pompe,” will bring comfort to those that are also dealing with Pompe disease. She remembers how scary it was when her son was first diagnosed and wants to help guide others through their journey.
