Join us at the fourth annual 22Q at the Zoo − Worldwide Awareness Day on Sunday, May 18, 2014.
This special event gives families touched by 22Q a chance to socialize, network and raise the public profile of the common but poorly recognized 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. In 2013, nearly 10,000 participants attended 22Q at the Zoo in 82 cities on six continents.
The 22Q-VCFS Center at Cincinnati Children’s suggests these resources for families seeking information or support.
A family support network providing education, support and social activities for individuals and families affected by 22Q-VCFS. Email 22Q-VCFS@cchmc.org for information.
Our Family Support Network is there for you.
