This is an open format fundraiser so you can come by at your convenience. Hours are posted for structure and to provide an estimate on when raffles will occur. Please come support the nonprofit organization that offers so much for individuals (and their families) that are diagnosed with 1p36 Deletion Syndrome.
For those not familiar with our daughter Bella Marshall, in 2009, she was diagnosed with 1p36 Deletion Syndrome - a congenital genetic disorder caused by the deletion of the most distal light band of the short arm of chromosome 1. Chromosome 1 is the largest human chromosome and represents about 8 percent of the total DNA in human cells. The "p" stands for the short or 'petite' arm of the chromosome; “36” stands for the location of the deletion on the chromosome. It is estimated that 1p36 Deletion Syndrome occurs 1 in every 5,000 to 10,000 births.
1p36 Deletion Support & Awareness was founded in 2009 by parents of children diagnosed with 1p36 Deletion Syndrome in hopes to bring support to families and greater awareness to society regarding this condition. The mission of 1p36 Deletion Support & Awareness is to help individuals affected by chromosome 1p36 abnormalities overcome the obstacles they face to be able to lead healthy, happy and productive lives. We do this by providing support and education to their families and increasing awareness of chromosome 1p36 abnormalities in the public and medical community. 1p36 Deletion Support & Awareness is the only organization in the US focused entirely on support and education for 1p36 Deletion Syndrome. The organization works closely with patients, families, researchers, and physicians. For more information you can visit http://www.1p36dsa.org/
