OACS Children….Newest figures


Oacs charity was set up to provide health and support for children who are diagnosed with FACS Syndrome.  We currently have

682 diagnosed children with FACS Syndrome

468 of these are families – meaning brothers and sisters in the same family have the condition

402 of these children are born from Epilim (Sodium Valproate)… this equates to 60%

 

As the media awareness is getting bigger and bigger, and also prescriptions for the medicines are given to women to treat other conditions…. these figures for OACS are going to rocket.
