In a report earlier this year, Yahoo News and Katie Couric shared insight on Fragile X and its link to autism and other well-known conditions. In that report, she asked an important question: “If the Fragile X protein is so critically important and may be related to a whole host of diseases, why is there not more funding for Fragile X research?”

Our Fragile X community understands that we need to improve awareness.

That’s why we’re happy to partner with Yahoo for Fragile X Awareness Month to offer others a glimpse of one family’s journey through life with Fragile X and insight into research necessary to “crack the code” and solve the puzzles of Fragile X, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression and more.
