Women with X-linked genetic disorders, also known as “carriers,” aren’t typically just carriers and often manifest symptoms, in addition to having a 50% chance of passing the condition down to their offspring. Remember The Girls’ mission is to raise awareness of the issues facing carriers of these conditions and to provide a forum for women to share their stories, receive emotional support, and learn how to advocate for themselves and their families.
