2013-2014 Holiday Campaign is here!

The 2013-2014 Holiday Campaign is here with a special letter from Kenzie McDonald, a young and vibrant young adult who has been diagnosed with both FBN1 and TGFBR2 mutations. Despite her diagnosis, though scary at first, Kenzie shares her story of how she overcomes her obstacles and advocates to others, "live within the limits, but don't be afraid to live." Please support the CMA by making a tax deductable donation and help us achieve our mission to improve healthcare outcomes for patients and provide education and support to individuals and families affected by genetic aortic disorders.
