Genes for jeans day

Last Friday was jeans for genes day. I actually have a genetic disorder. CHARGE syndrome is partly a genetic disorder as in there is a gene but not everyone will have the gene

It is very complex but it isn’t hereditary and is like a pot luck kind of thing. It can also be diagnose clinically. I am clinically diagnosed as there was no gene when I was born.

Over the years as more has been discovered they have changed the way they diagnose it but basically you need to have at least half of the features

I find awareness is a wonderful thing for many different things. The more we learn the more we understand.
