Event description

Description

July is Fragile X Awareness month. Get some friends together and join us for a High Tea to raise awareness of Fragile X and support those living with Fragile X and their famalies.

What is Fragile X Syndrome?

Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) is a genetic condition causing intellectual disability, behavioural and learning challenges and various physical characteristics. It is also the most common single gene cause of autism worldwide. It appears in people of all ethnic, racial and socio economic backgrounds.

Though FXS occurs in both genders, males are generally affected with greater severity. Every week in Australia one child is born who is fully affected and 20 children are born who are carriers. It is estimated that 5 per cent of people with a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum disorder also have Fragile X.

Although there is currently no cure, early intervention by health and educational professionals can assist people living with Fragile X to reach their full potential.

All Funds Raised will go directly to the Fragile X association.

Fragile X Association of Australia is a non-profit organisation that provides support for families living with Fragile X and works to increase the awareness of the condition.
