2Construct x Jeans for Genes
A sincere thank you to everyone who made a donation to help find cures for children’s genetic diseases, every little bit helps. 2Construct is excited to say that we’ve raised $1045 in Jeans for Genes – smashing our $500 target!
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, we’re 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.
