How can we support those affected by Turner Syndrome?
Turner Syndrome is a chronic rare condition occurring in 1 in every 2000-4000 newborn females. It affects only females where one of the X chromosomes is missing or partially missing. This can lead to an array of medical problems including short height, heart defects and failure of ovaries to develop.
About 50% of those tested have the second X Chromosome missing, whereas 30% of those who are tested have some cells with both X Chromosomes and some missing it. There is no treatment a doctor can give for the condition but depending on the health concerns that arise for each girl, it should be monitored and treated by the appropriate specialist.
50% of profits go to Turner Syndrome Society of the United States & The National Turner Syndrome Camp, Inc.
