About Us

Founded in 1995

The PKU Organization of Wisconsins was founded in 1995 by Michelle Hardy because she saw a need in her community and state for support and encouragement for individuals and families living with PKU.    

Michelle ran the organization with the help of her family for many years, and then due to other obligations decided to step down and hand the organization over to another family.  Unfortunately the organization went dormant, and in 2012 she reinstated the organization and again was providing support to those in need with the help of her family.
