Fulcrum Therapeutics shared an inspiring story from the National Fragile X Foundation about a girl named Kelley Devine who has Fragile X Syndrome. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Fragile X Syndrome is a genetic condition that causes a range of developmental problems like learning disabilities and cognitive impairment and studies show males are affected more severly than females (U.S. National Library of Medicine). Kelley wrote the story herself and explains the struggle she went through growing up and understanding Fragile X Syndrome. In 2010, Kelley attended a conference that supported others who have Fragile X Syndrome. She made lots of friends and that experience helped her change her life. Kelley is now a college graduate from Bridgewater State University and she recently obtained a job within the court system. Read more of Kelley’s story here.
