Jeans for Genes 2019

Jeans for Genes day is celebrated in various parts of the globe during the months of August- September.
It was established to fund revolutionary research that helps diagnose, understand, and find cures or treatments for conditions affecting children, including genetic diseases.

1 in 20 children is born with a genetic disease or birth defect. You likely know and care about someone affected.
Genetic diseases are one of the leading causes of death in kids under four and the main cause of ongoing hospitalisation.

 
 
As genomic testing has become more widely available worldwide, we can increasingly identify a genetic cause and classify the specific condition of many children who live with Immunodeficiency. 
This can have a tremendous impact on treatment options and the course of the disease as well as the ability to provide genetic counselling to those family members potentially affected.

To celebrate the day and raise funds you could wear denim from top to toe, bake blue cupcakes or even dye your hair blue! Whatever you decide to do you will be making a big difference to the lives of children living with a genetic disorder.

Please search for your local Jeans for Genes organisation and encourage the families and patients you care for to join in.
