When Stephanie was diagnosed at 6 years of age we felt very overwhelmed and alone. At the time the Turner Society was more geared toward adults with Turners this is now changing to include all girls and women with Turners. Stephanie is 10 years old now and we love the progress the Turners Syndrome Society is making. Turner Syndrome(TS) is a condition that affects only girls and women. It is identified by a difference in genetic make-up of those affected. Most girls and women have two complete X chromosomes (the sex chromosomes for females). Turner Syndrome is caused by the absence of all or part of the second X chromosome in some or all of the cells in the body. The absence of all or part of one X chromosome is associated with a range of health, developmental, social and learning challenges, which affect girls and women with TS to different extents. The Turner Society of Canada has helped many girls and women deal with the symptoms of TS. They have created a loving and caring environment that helps these lovely girls cope with the wide variety of issues that TS can cause. Any help to the society directly helps the girls and women that look upon the society for assistance, information, help and friendship.
