July 22 is a day that is very special to me for a couple of reasons. First, it's my anniversary, and each year with Mr Awesome is certainly a reason to celebrate!! Second, it is also National Fragile X Awareness Day. For those that are paying attention...you will know that Fragile X Syndrome is a genetic disorder that I am a carrier of and two of my kids (as well as countless number of other family members) are affected by.
To help raise awareness, the National Fragile X Foundation has put together a Facebook event for this day.I would more than appreciate your support and help raising awareness if you could go to the event and "attend". By simply attending and having the event cross your newsfeed you may be reaching even just one person who has never heard of Fragile X before. Awareness is so very important to this disorder that is among other things the #1 known genetic cause of Autism yet so many people have never even heard of it! Thank you so much to all of you who take the few minutes to do this - remember, just ONE person can make a difference and today that person could be you.
