Tomorrow it's Jeans for Genes Day in the UK. You may think (like I did) that genetic conditions are very rare. In fact 1 in 25 children born in the UK have a genetic disorder. That is an astounding 30,000 babies each year. The money raised from Jeans for Genes Day helps over 500,000 children living in the UK and this year one of the charities to benefit from the money raised is The Ectodermal Dysplasia Society.
Some of you may know that Ectodermal Dysplasia (ED) affects my family. I have previously written a little about the rare condition here. I have already received very helpful advice from The Ectodermal Dysplasia Society about obtaining treatment for my little boy as well as genetic testing during my last pregnancy. Our family will certainly need further support as our children grow up. Therefore this is a cause very close to my heart and I'll be wearing my T.Shirt in support! #JeansForGenes #JeansForGenesDay
