Nancy Shute, a freelancer formerly with U.S. News & World Report, said Zimmer "brings surprising insight and perspective to subjects as heavily covered as the swine flu virus." Hotz of The Wall Street Journal said Zimmer's work "demonstrates the continuing strength of print journalism and the commitment of newspapers" to convey compelling research to their readers.

"Though the story focused on a human drama, it gave readers a needed look at the tragedy of genetic diseases and how they might be avoided," said Guy Gugliotta, a freelance science writer. Through the family's story, Shute said, "readers learn how difficult it is to research genetic disorders, and how essential it is to have the cooperation on families like these."
