Emily’s Star Trisomy Awareness Month

Emily’s Star has been passionate about raising awareness of Trisomy 18 also known as Edwards Syndrome for nearly 11 years.

Emily’s Star was founded in April 2012 & one of our main aims was to raise awareness of his hidden yet common condition. Edwards Syndrome is the second most common syndrome in the UK after Downs Syndrome.

Recently Eastenders have run a storyline with Whitney & Zack’s characters that their unborn baby has Edwards Syndrome.

This is promoted some great awareness of the condition but also of our charity which is based right here in Milton Keynes.

In this weeks edition of NEW magazine they have shared our story which can also be read on OK! Online - 'Like EastEnders' Whitney, I lost my baby to Edwards' syndrome at 24 days old' - OK! Magazine
