even with an emergency supply of baby formula landed in the us now this week a many families are still struggling to feed their children as abc 7 news. anchor liz croyd's reports one mother in santa rosa is so desperate to find a specific formula. she turned to help on facebook where she then fell victim to a scam. this is how keely aguilar now spends her mornings and nights. mixing up some of the few cans of formula. she still has left before going on her phone computer social media doing anything. she can to find the specific baby formula her 11 year old daughter natalia needs to survive. natalia is on a medical grade formula. that means that it is be a prescription. natalia has a rare medical condition called brainbridge roper syndrome that affects all aspects. her cognitive and developmental abilities. she cannot eat food or even process many of the common baby formulas found at grocery stores. that's why keeley has turned to facebook and instagram hoping
