The Chromosome 18 Registry & Research Society is a lay advocacy organization composed primarily of the parents of individuals with a chromosome 18 abnormality. We consist of three separate organizations located in the United States, Australia, and Europe, all with a common mission: To help people with chromosome 18 abnormalities overcome the obstacles they face so they may lead happy, healthy, and productive lives. We are proud to count among our members those who are affected by a chromosome 18 abnormality, extended family members, and professionals. Membership is open to any interested person. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt public charity.
Our work is supported by memberships and donations from individuals and charitable organizations. We have met the strict criteria for fiscal responsibility set by the Combined Federal Campaign.
