DDX3X is a rare, de novo genetic mutation that impacts development from conception onward in affected females. Girls with this mutation have intellectual disabilties of ranging severity, mobility challenges, communication limmitations, sensory disregulation, and various medical complications such as vision and hearing problems or seizures. The DDX3X mutaition is a newly discovered, rare disorder that currently impacts around 100 people worldwide. We are raising funds for the DDX3X Foundation whose mission is to drive research to improve treatment options for affected girls and their families. The DDX3X Foundation is currently working to fund Dr. Elliott Sherr's study to understand this disease and to develop therapies to improve the lives of those affected. Dr. Sherr is an accomplished neurologist, professor and reseracher at UCSF and he is leading the way in research on the DDX3X mutation.
