Kelly first came to us in 2013, shortly after her three-year-old son Felix received his diagnosis. After months of 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. We gave Kelly emotional and financial support to help her.
