Friends of Fragile X


Friends of Fragile X is a way you can support the Fragile X Society on a regular basis through monthly donations. We receive no government funding and are dependent on the kindness of others so we can continue to provide our services. This includes staffing, to deliver our objectives, office costs, and maintaining our helpline, which took over 967 calls last year.
