More information on Distal Trisomy 10q

Social Media and Google Group

  • We administer a Google Group for parents of children with Distal Trisomy 10q, Proximal 10p, and a few other 10 related syndromes. The main purpose of this group is to provide a way to send emails to all of the participates of this group (approx. 60 families). Typical messages are about introductions, requests for experiential information from parents, and anything parents want to share about their child with the whole group. This tool’s strength is that most of the 10q parents will receive your message. It is a private group so you will need to request admission (through our email address).
  • Facebook There are several Facebook groups that provide a good way to share in real time with those that participate in those groups. One group covers all trisomies, the other covers chromosome disorders in general. You will need to request permission to join the group from their administrators.
