JOIN US in spreading the word about 22q11.2 deletion and duplication during November’s 22q Awareness Month — the largest campaign of the year to raise awareness and funds for The International 22q11.2 Foundation!

“What’s 22q?” … Our goal during this month is to let the world know what a complex condition this is, how much support is sometimes required, and how these amazing, beautiful children overcome many obstacles to survive and thrive! Not forgetting the few that are lost far, far too soon. We want the world to know all our stories and to recognize the beauty within these individuals.

You are important and we need you to get the word out about 22q11.2 Syndromes. There are many ways you can get involved to make a difference and shine the light on 22q!

The History of 22q Awareness Month

22q Awareness Month began in 2014, when proud Mom, Raj Hemus, created a Facebook Page, called 22qAwarenessDays, that has now grown to over 10,000 followers! Raj asked if the International 22q11.2 Foundation would share her site on our website and social media outlets – and of course, we agreed – as we all have the same drive to help further the mission to raise awareness, and help people learn about 22q11.2 deletion and duplication — the most common genetic syndrome no one has ever heard of!
