NATIONAL TRISOMY AWARENESS MONTH
Every March, the National Institutes of Child Health and Development (NICHD) and other organizations come together to bring awareness and support to those with Trisomy conditions. While most people have 23 pairs of chromosomes, some have a condition that causes extra partial or full chromosomes in their cells.
Those extra chromosomes can cause a range of health problems, learning difficulties as well as delays in physical development.
