Hi I'm a parent to a 7 year old girl with a extremely rare condition (CFC syndrome) wanting to communicate with other parents

    Hi @kiesha
    welcome to the community.  Do you want to tell us a bit more about yourself and your daughter? What does CFC syndrome entail?

    Hi @kiesha welcome to the community,  we are still going through the genetic testing stage and there is a possibility my little girl (4) might have something really rare too.  

    With some of these conditions being so incredibly rare, the chances of meeting another family affected by something like CFC are tiny, but we may be experiencing similar issues and this is a great place to chat to others x

    Hi @Kiesha,

    How are you? Would love to know more about CFC syndrome, it's not something I've come across before.
