At age 31 with no genetic disorder history, our NIPT test revealed that our son has an extra "Y" chromosome. His condition is called 47,XYY or Jacobs Syndrome. While the condition is not often severe and definitely is not life-threatening, it became clear that there just isn't that much information about it out there. Parents deserve to be well-informed about this and other chromosome conditions and abnormalities, and we hope to use these funds to foster that.
The Focus Foundation is dedicated to information and support regarding children and adults with X and Y chromosome variations.
