Why I’m doing Jeans for Genes

Our family has faced some pretty big challenges lately when it comes to genetic disorders, something I have had to learn a lot about. It is extremely difficult awaiting research and availability of treatments and many families have it much harder than us. This year I am supporting Jeans for Genes because I want to help discover treatments and cures, for the 1 in 20 kids facing a birth defect or genetic disease.

Please support me by sponsoring me this year! I am going to chop off my hair and donate this to make a wig for someone in need. I have done this before with great success… it was the only thing motivating me enough to take the plunge and chop it all off after years of growing it again. 

Thank you for your donations and opening up the conversation around genetic disorders, screening and treatments.
