Ring Chromosome 20 Foundation
The Ring Chromosome 20 Foundation hopes to promote awareness of ring chromosome 20 and the importance to chromosomal testing in children. Ring chromosome 20 occurs when the arms of one of the pair of chromosome 20s, that are present in each cell, fuse to form a ring during pre-natal development. The mission of the Ring Chromosome 20 Foundation is to help individuals affected by ring chromosome 20 syndrome overcome the obstacle they face so they can lead happy, healthy and productive lives. The Ring Chromosome 20 Foundation works toward achieving its mission by offering, online support groups, education, and patient networking.
