Making a Difference One Child at a Time

We all want a brighter future for children with a Trisomy 18 diagnosis. Your support is essential to making that happen. Hosting an event to support the Trisomy 18 Foundation and raise awareness about this condition helps build a community of hope for all Trisomy 18 families.

Families often find a community event or fundraiser is a wonderful way to celebrate the memory of a child lost to this tragic genetic disorder. Your child’s name lives on in the good that the event will generate, turning grief and loss into meaningful change for other families.

The money raised from events and fundraisers helps us provide a caring, supportive worldwide community for families impacted by Trisomy 18, advocate for compassionate, supportive care, and fund research that seeks to reduce or eliminate life-threatening and quality of life challenges facing patients with Trisomy 18.

Thank you for your support of families facing a Trisomy 18 diagnosis. Your generosity and commitment make a world of difference.

    The Kimmel Family

We all want a brighter future for children with a Trisomy 18 diagnosis. That’s why champions like the Kimmel family are so important. The Kimmels have been dedicated supporters of the Trisomy 18 community for almost a decade. Since 2013 they have raised over $100,000 in memory of their sweet daughter Ayla.

This year’s annual golf tournament was held at the Diamond Run Golf Club on August 8th. The successful event featured breakfast donated by Dunkin Donuts and lunch sponsored by Giant Eagle and Fuhrer Wholesale. After golfing a round of 18 at the beautiful course nestled in the lush green landscape of Sewickley, Pennsylvania, golfers returned to the clubhouse for drinks and a chance to bid on exclusive prizes while enjoying refreshing milkshakes donated by Bruster’s Ice Cream.

Thank you to the Kimmel family and to their friends and community for supporting this wonderful annual event that helps to bring much needed hope to families and their children coping with Trisomy 18. Their support makes all the difference.
