July is National Fragile X Awareness Month

   2021 FRAGILE X AWARENESS DAY: Thursday, July 22, 2021

On July 12, 2000, the United States Senate designated July 22 as National Fragile X Awareness Day. Each year, the NFXF and the Fragile X community celebrate July 22 plus 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. We strive to do this every day, but once a year, in July, we bang our drum even louder to raise awareness about some very Xtraordinary people.

Here’s just some of what we did for 2020 National Fragile X Awareness Day & Month:

Xtraordinary Individuals

We asked to learn more about the Xtraordinary individuals in your lives, and we are hearing from parents, professionals, friends, co-workers, grandparents, employers, cousins, doctors, and mentors (to name just a few), and more are coming in every day!
