LET 'EM KNOW ABOUT FRAGILE X!
July is Fragile X Awareness Month! Our Mission is to support individuals and families living with Fragile X through education, awareness and research.
You can help by giving today!
Some Fragile X Facts
- The Fragile X gene potentially holds the key to unlocking treatments for autism, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, major depression and more.
- A mutation on the Fragile X gene can cause a myriad of disorders, including fragile X syndrome, FXTAS, FXPOI as well health issues in carriers of the mutation.
- Fragile X is the number one inherited cause of intellectual disability and autism.
Know Fragile X, Know Me
This July, we are raising awareness by telling you not only what the NFXF does to help the community, but to tell you about the people of our community: Our self-advocates, government advocates, parents and grandparents.
The better the public understands the Fragile X community, the easier it is to improve our community members' quality of life through education, public policy, research and more.
