Thanks to the generosity of others the 17q12 community was able to meet for their first family conference as an official group in 2019. Our next big project is absolutely critical to answer all of the questions that remain unanswered for 17q12 duplication and deletion syndromes: a medical registry. We reached our biggest goal yet as a community and raised enough to cover the initial costs. We are now in the final stages of making the 17q12 medical registry a reality and are close to launching. This year's fundraising goal is to cover the medical registry's annual maintenance costs and to raise enough funds to make another family conference possible. We are small but mighty. Every fundraising effort brings us closer to these goals!
