Colleen Usrey wrote -3 of our 4 grandchildren/Niece/Nephews (Brad, Parker and Allison) have Fragile X Syndrome.
Fragile X is the leading cause of inherited intellectual disability and the leading known cause of Autism.
Fragile X is a family of genetic disorders including FXS (Fragile X Syndrome) which the grandchildren have, FXPOI (Fragile X Primary Ovarian Inufficiancy) *fertility difficulties, early menopause - and FXTAS (Fragile X Tremor Ataxia Syndrome) which can affect carriers (like John and our daughters) over the age of 50 and looks like a combination of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
Please help us as we raise money for the National Fragile X Foundation through the 10th Annual Walk for FX (April 20th, 2013 in Canton if you can come we would love your support!)!!
Thank you very much for your support!
John, Colleen, and Heather Usrey
