Chromosome Disorder Outreach, Inc. is a non–profit organization, founded,
supported, and run by parents just like you. Our children are affected by a wide
range of chromosome disorders, including deletions, duplications, trisomies, inversions,
translocations, and rings. Sometimes these disorders are so unusual that doctors
tell us, "You’re the only one out there." But now using our newly
introduced web application we have the capability to specifically categorize chromosomal
karyotypes and finally begin to understand more about the genes involved in each
rare chromosome rearrangement. We hope to eventually improve specifically tailored
treatments to help affected individuals.
Please read our
Introduction to Chromosomes for more about these rare disorders. We’ve
been helping each other for over eighteen years. Our families live around the world
and CDO provides a network of support and information through an extensive library
of available up–to–date articles, detailed registry, newsletters, and
a listserv that’s online 24 hours a day, every day. Please join us. Your support
of CDO will help promote research and a better understanding of our children’s
rare chromosome disorders.
