The three new members are Susan Faitos, Sara Show and Kimberly Murray. We'll post mini interviews of them here in the coming weeks, but for now, here's a brief introduction:
Susan Faitos joined the Network in 1998, having been diagnosed with a spontaneous case of XLH at 18 months. She is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and currently volunteers with Hospice of Santa Cruz County as well as Live Oak Community Resources. Her spare time is spent either on a bike ride to the beach, taking care of her three godchildren, or fervently trying to keep up with her new puppy.
Sara Show and her family reside in South Dakota. She joined the Network in 2016, after her daughter was diagnosed with XLH, later determined to be a spontaneous case. Sara is an Associate Attorney with a private litigation firm and has had the privilege to work for a Senator, the US Attorney in South Dakota, a State’s Attorney in South Dakota, and several Judges in South Dakota State Court. She enjoys spending time with her husband and their daughter, who has XLH, and son, who does not have XLH. She is also currently a member of the fundraising committee for the Network.
Kimberly Murray resides in Louisiana with her husband Tom and their daughter. Kimberly was diagnosed with XLH as a toddler, and her daughter was diagnosed at six months old. Kimberly has a passion for raising awareness of XLH. She currently works as a branch operations manager. Her hobbies include cooking, traveling, attending music festivals/concerts, and playtime with her daughter.
