Xtraordinary people in the lives of those with Fragile XEvery year in July, we come together to celebrate National Fragile X Awareness Month. It’s not only an opportunity for us to bond as a community, it’s a time to open ourselves up to the world and share our individual stories.

To get ready for the big month ahead, we wanted to ask you all to tell us about someone Xtraordinary in your life related to Fragile X.

Yes, we’re talking about self-advocates … and we’re talking about mothers, fathers, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and great grandparents. We’re also talking about caregivers, teachers, special educators, doctors, nurses, therapists, and friends who make a positive impact just by being there, and who step up when the need arises.

Nomination Form

Please fill out the form below to submit your Xtraordinary someone — and please feel free to enter more than one nomination. You may also upload an optional photo.

Please keep in mind that we’ll be sharing your nominee on social media during the month of July.

We’ll also send them a certificate to let them know they’re Xtraordinary — the form asks for an email address (preferred), or you can provide a mailing address. If you have questions, please let us know!

Each year, the NFXF and the Fragile X community celebrate all of July as National Fragile X Awareness Month, with the goal of expanding public awareness and educating those who are in a position to help make a difference.

MalloryWe asked to learn more about the Xtraordinary individuals in your lives and here they are. These are all a must-see/must-read!
