Love for the Noonies...

FiveHumans was recently made aware of a cause called Noonan Sydrome because the supporters of this genetic condition are so passionate about raising awareness. Mother's of Noonies (a child with Noonan Syndrome) have voted, left comments and emailed about the need for greater awareness of this cause that affects so many children.

Noonan Syndrome is a relatively common congenital genetic condition which affects both males and females. The principal features include congenital heart malformation, short stature, learning problems, indentation of the chest, impaired blood clotting, and a characteristic configuration of facial features. The syndrome is named after Dr Jacqueline Noonan.

It is believed that between approximately 1 in 1,000 and 1 in 2,500 children worldwide are born with NS. It is one of the most common genetic syndromes associated with congenital heart disease, similar in frequency to Down syndrome. However, the range and severity of features can vary greatly in patients with NS. Therefore, the syndrome is not always identified at an early age.

To find out more about Noonan Syndrome, you can visit The Noonan Syndrome Support Group’s website at: http://www.noonansyndrome.org/

Please keep informing us and educating us about this and any cause that affects you so that we can help spread awareness in any way we can.

Thank you Thank You Thank You!! As a mother with NS with 2 children with NS I wanted to thank you for helping us to raise awareness about this "hidden condition". NS may go unrecognized for many years in some cases(like myself and my children). So it is always great to read about people willing to spread awareness :)
