30 Cleary Avenue
Ontario, K2A 4A1
The Turner's Syndrome Society of Canada is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals and families affected by Turner's syndrome. Turner’s syndrome is a rare chromosomal disorder that affects 1 in approximately 2,500 females. Females normally have two X chromosomes. However, in those with Turner's syndrome, one X chromosome is absent or is damaged. Affected females may exhibit short stature, webbing of the neck, absence of secondary sexual development, infertility, and/or other abnormalities. Established in 1981, the Turner's Syndrome Society provides support services and disseminates up-to-date medical information to affected families, physicians and other healthcare professionals, and the general public.
