May – Prader-Willi Awareness Month

✨ Prader-Willi Awareness Month ✨

🧡 The month of May is Prader-Willi Syndrome Awareness Month. Prader-Willi syndrome is a rare, complex genetic disorder that affects both males and females from birth and throughout their lives. It causes low muscle tone with consequent motor developmental delays, a mild to moderate learning difficulty, incomplete sexual development, and underdeveloped emotional and social understanding, which can lead to challenging behaviours. Prader-Willi is very close to our hearts, as one of our very first Young People at the Hennessy Group was diagnosed with Prader-Willi. Let’s spread awareness for Prader-Willi and support those in need.
