My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for FRAXA Research Foundation, Newburyport, MA, USA
Our family was devastated when my nephew, Lucas, was diagnosed with Fragile X. FRAXA was the organization that offered hope, support, understanding and an unwavering dedication to finding a cure. Since FRAXA volunteers are the parents and families of those precious children and young adults affected, the monies donated truly go to research.
It's amazing how many people, including doctors and others in the medical profession, have never heard of Fragile X! In order to help awareness my license plate is FXCURE. When curious minds ask what it means, I find that handing out the cards from FRAXA help people understand what it is and how prevalent it's becoming. Occasionally one will comment that they either have or know of someone who has Fragile X or autism. I even met a football Hall-of-Famer whose daughter in law actually is doing research for a university using FRAXA grants. She became involved when her son was diagnosed. We need FRAXA and FRAXA needs us!
