  • Apert Syndrome
  • Cri du Chat Syndrome
  • Pierre Robin Syndrome
  • Treacher Collins Syndrome
  • Alagille Syndrome
  • MoyaMoya Syndrome
  • Progeria Syndrome
  • Marfan Syndrome
  • Klinefelter S Syndrome and....

Great list! Kawasaki Syndrome has always intrigued me, too.

Wow, I have never heard of ANY of those syndromes!

Actually, I was diagnosed with Moyamoya disease/syndrome in 2001 and have had corrective surgery on both sides of my brain. You can read more about Moyamoya on http://www.moyamoya.com

The baby I miscarried had Turner Syndrome.

Hi Jenny,

Wow, your blog is beautiful. You are such a compassionate person. You are truly living out that scripture and comforting others.

Gus is precious...

My son is being monitored for "Marfans". He has many of the criteria, we are watching closely.

I also have another son with a brain tumor. He is currently doing well, praise God!

Thanks for being such a blessing to so many.

Blessings to you my friend,

Susan
