With over 6000 genetic conditions currently known, some affect many, while others may only affect a handful of people. We believe that everyone should be able to access to the support they need, exactly when they need it, no matter how well known their genetic disorder may be.

Lily, has a rare chromosome disorder called 16p11.2 microdeletion so it’s a challenge to communicate, make friends & socialise which can be isolating for her. But, as lockdown restrictions eased, Lily was really excited to return to college. We think Lily is a superstar!

We love talking about the people we celebrate! One thing our campaign stands for is bringing the genetic disorder community together in order to make a loud noise about the issues that matter to them. If you want to help, request your fundraising pack today (link in bio!).

Jack has the genetic disorder Kleefstra Syndrome. Jack’s mum said: “Over the first month of lockdown Jack found his voice & started to copy single words which expanded his ability to communicate with us. This was something we were initially told he would never be able to do."
