We hope your new year is off to a great start! This month we will take a moment to recognize the many individuals, families, students and LINKS groups who took it upon themselves to raise money for the NFXF in 2012. Thanks to every one of you! We deeply appreciate all your efforts and contributions toward helping us help the Fragile X community. You make the difference!
