Denim Disco in Manilla

Why I’m doing Jeans for Genes

This year we are having a Denim Disco to celebrate Jeans for Genes day 2022! This will be a great night for the kids of Manilla to come together and dance the night away! 

We are raising awareness about genetic conditions in children as our beautiful boy Max has Shwachman Diamond Syndrome (SDS). For Max this means different medications twice a day, being connected to a feeding pump overnight and frequent blood tests. Kids with SDS can develop leukemia so Max has bone marrow aspirates to check for early changes in his marrow. Liver, neurological and skeletal abnormalities are also common in SDS patients. There is currently no cure for this syndrome.

We believe fundraising for the Children's Medical Research Institute is so important. They work hard every day to find better treatments and cures for our Aussie kids who live with medical conditions. 

Thank you for your support
