Review for 1p36 Deletion Support & Awareness, Bend, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a Family Member of the 1p36 Family since 2005. My daughter was diagnosed when there was not much info on the Chromosome Deletion. I tried to find information on the internet but I was no Doctor. I found a Yahoo group that introduced me to a couple of members. I was alone and did not know where to turn to. In the past 8 years I have found Family that understood what I went through. My daughter Shelby passed away December 24th, 2012. I have never seen an out pour of Love, Sympathy and understanding of the loss of Shelby Girl. I knew that every word spoken was true and was heart felt because we are a FAMILY. You can never take away the Special Bond we all have for each other. When you can walk into a room filled with people that know exactly how you feel it is a feeling you can never replace. I am a 1p36 MOM and am very proud of all my FAMILY XO
