Kelly first came to us in 2013, shortly after her three-year old son Felix received his diagnosis. After months of consultations and testing Felix was finally diagnosed with Phelan McDermid Syndrome; a rare genetic disorder caused by the deletion of terminal chromosome twenty-two Q-13. The disorder affects speech, mobility and cognitive development and means that Felix will need 24-hour care for the rest of his life.
Since Kelly came to us for help we’ve stood firmly by her side to provide emotional and financial assistance.
We’re proud to support colleagues like Kelly. Colleagues working in our industry today who, through no fault of their own, get knocked off course by one of life’s challenges.
Please help us share Kelly's story by forwarding to a colleague. You can request a copy of the film by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
