March is trisomy 18 awareness month, today is 18th and marks Trisomy 18 awareness day! Please spread awareness everywhere to anyone.You would be surprised at how many people have never even heard of this it is one of the most common trisomies out there next to Trisomy 21(down syndrome) everyone knows what that is.So why doesnt anyone know about Trisomy 18!! help me and our trisomy 18 family world wide by telling a close friend,a family member or even a stranger that Trisomy 18 (T18) (also known as Trisomy E or Edwards syndrome) is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of an extra 18th chromosome. It is the second most common autosomal trisomy, after Down Syndrome, that carries to term.
Trisomy 18 is caused by the presence of three – as opposed to two – copies of chromosome 18 in a infant's cells. The incidence of the syndrome is estimated as one in 3,000 live births. The incidence increases as the mother's age increases. The syndrome has a very low rate of survival, resulting from heart abnormalities, kidney malformations, and other internal organ disorders.
This is my Nolan, born June 25 2009 at 42 weeks 4lbs 10oz 18 inches long Full trisomy 18,VSD and DORV.He needed no assistance breathing when he was born! Nolan only needed an NG tube to help him get nurtrition.At 6 months he discovered baby food and loved it! 13 months old nolan had Gtube surgery and a Fundo repair.Nolan always had a smile who could brighten anyones day.His eyes full of love.We gave our Nolie a chance at life, he lived 19 beautiful memory filled months, he said "dada" and LOVED his big sister Lexi they often laid in his bed and chatted every morning.January 21 2011 was Nolans goodbye, RSV,Bacterial pheunomnia,Viral pheunomnia,and bronchilits took his sweet life, he fought with everything he had. Nolie will forever have a place in our hearts. RAISE AWARENESS!!! TRISOMY 18 IS COMPATIBLE WITH LIFE!!! make a change and tell everyone you know. Nolie's smile is living proof, a miracle.
