Max Appeal

Please jump for Max Appeal to help us raise awareness of this frequent but still little of heard of, life changing condition named 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome.

Max Appeal supports those affected by 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome (DS), sometimes called Di George Syndrome. A number of genes are missing on the lower arm of the 22nd chromosome. The effect 22q11 DS has, is pretty well unique to each individual, from heart defects, immune deficiency, learning and behavioural difficulties, speech and language issues. It is a multi-system disorder and the greatest known genetic risk factor for schizophrenia.
