Having a sister with Williams Syndrome has made me want to help her foundation to put money into further research. I don’t buy Christmas or Birthday cards and I always felt guilty for not doing so, but the truth is I don’t see any thought that has gone into buying something that someone else has wrote. This is just my opinion though and I have many friends who love cards.
Instead, I like to put a small donation on my JustGiving page!
My sister was diagnosed at the age of 7 with the rare genetic disorder, she has one chromosome partially missing and it affects her ability to perform day to day tasks as easily as we do, it also affects her ability to learn.
Williams is a very rare condition affecting only 1 in 30,000 people. Chantelle also suffers from non-epileptic attack disorder and mild mitral stenosis.
