Advocacy Center

Our Commitment

At the Trisomy 18 Foundation, our goal is to find answers for all who struggle with a Trisomy 18 diagnosis for a much-wanted child, whether in pregnancy or after the birth of a child.

We are guided by an uncompromising passion to understand this complex disorder and hasten the discovery of a cure for the causes of Trisomy 18 in conception. We are committed to raising public awareness about Trisomy 18 and its effects on children, families, and society, and to giving hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. We also seek to raise funds to facilitate effective treatment and research on Trisomy 18. We are dedicated to uncovering the biology of Trisomy 18 and developing effective biomedical treatments through research funding.

The Trisomy 18 Foundation aims to bring the entire Trisomy 18 community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to prevent Trisomy 18 from taking away our children. It is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the answers and create a different future for families coping with this disorder. This is the purpose of our Advocacy efforts here in the Advocacy Center.

The Trisomy 18 Foundation unites our voices. It's time for the world to listen.

The Purpose of the Advocacy Center is to be the place to learn about the various Advocacy Program initiatives being undertaken by the Foundation now and planned for the future.

We will focus our efforts on:

Raising awareness of Trisomy 18 as a condition and of the needs of families whose children are diagnosed with this condition in pregnancy or infancy.

Advocating for a larger share of federal research dollars being dedicated toTrisomy 18 research, public health initiatives and early intervention treatment funding.

Representing the needs of Trisomy 18 families' in discussions of relevant federal and state agencies and in legislative and regulatory initiatives that may impact children and families.
