💙The 1 in 20 kids facing a birth defect or genetic disease are used to hearing words like “incurable” or “lifelong effects”. It doesn’t have to be this way. Right now, Jeans for Genes is working on gene therapy to find cures for previously incurable genetic diseases.💙

💙A genetic disease is a serious condition caused, at least in part, by changes in our DNA. While often inherited, many happen ‘out of the blue’ due to chance occurrences. There are more than 6000 different genetic diseases. Most are poorly understood and have no specific treatments or cures.💙

💙Gene therapy is a method of curing genetic diseases by correcting the cause, by fixing an error in our DNA.💙

💙Jeans for Genes researchers have helped deliver gene therapy cures in Australia for boy in the bubble disease, spinal muscular atrophy, and the cure we’ve developed for metabolic liver disease is entering clinical trials in the UK. With your support, we can do so much more.💙

💙Right now, we are establishing a new gene therapy initiative to fill the gap in Australian medicine. We want to ensure children facing genetic diseases go from diagnosis to cure, and that those cures are affordable and available right here at home.💙

💙No child’s life should be cut short, and we will do all within our power to change “incurable” to “curable”.💙

💙1 in 20 kids is born with a birth defect or genetic disease - that’s one in every classroom! Help me to find tomorrow’s cures today: https://www.myjeansforgenes.org.au/team-platinum-health-group #jeansforgenesau 💙
