Welcome !

I guess you are looking at this page as you are either curious about what 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome is, or perhaps you have just found out that your child (or you, or your friend, or a sibling) has 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome.

Regardless of why (or how) you have found your way here, you are very welcome and I hope that this page and the other pages and sections on 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome are beneficial to you.

Just a note of caution however – whilst some of the pages and sections are written to be useful starting points for those seeking background information, other pages and sections are there for a more academic and research purpose.  So, please feel free to browse the pages that are useful to your own interests and do not allow yourself to get confused with the detail and content in those pages and sections that you do not need.

Many thanks for taking the time to visit and I hope that you will find something of interest to you.

Disclaimer – The Need to Seek Proper Medical Advice

Whilst my intentions and goals regarding the content of these pages about 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome are “good”, I take full responsibility for any factual errors that may have been inadvertently included.

With this in mind, I would caution you, and indeed urge you, to seek appropriate medical advice regarding 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome – especially if you yourself have 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome – or are reading these pages because you are the carer (or friend) of someone with 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome.

There is no better place to visit first than 22q11 Ireland – Ireland’s national charity for children and adults diagnosed with 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome, DiGeorge Syndrome, and VCFS.  If you want to ‘lurk’, that’s ok – however, Anne Lawlor and everyone involved with the group are fabulously knowledgeable and friendly.  So, I don’t think you’ll need to lurk for too long.  They give great advice and support – give them a call 🙂
