Back in 1989, Melissa Aylstock, a mother of an 8-year-old with Klinefelter syndrome, wrote a letter to Ann Landers. She offered to connect families who had a member with KS. She received over 1,000 letters. That was the beginning of AXYS.
For the next year, we will be celebrating 30 years of information, support, and research.
Our first celebration event will be a No Show Gala. We can all celebrate from the comfort of our own homes, happy to be a part of this caring community and also happy to avoid the crowds. Please purchase “tickets” to this event and help us serve the X and Y variation community for another 30 years.
The last week of the month will be our Online Silent Auction–check out some of the items that have been donated so far. There is still time for you to donate an item for auction. High value items that have nationwide appeal or are easy to ship are most needed. Please send an email to our Executive Director Carol Meerschaert describing the item you wish to donate or to ask any questions.
