By uniting families and sharing stories we support newly diagnosed families looking to connect with others. Creating community together, we will look to each others’ shared experiences to help us navigate this uncharted territory.


Connect with providers who have treated JdVS individuals, learn what works and share success stories. Here from a variety of specialists who have a unique understanding of how JdVS individuals learn best.


Through fundraising and grant efforts, we will work to provide researchers the resources necessary to gain a better understanding of the PPM1D mutation and develop potential treatments and therapies to ultimately improve the lives of those living with this rare genetic condition.


Putting JdVS on the map. Connecting researchers, uniting families and spreading the word we work tirelessly to increase awareness about JdVS.
