Same Name Campaign

How You Can Help

  • Think 22q! – Make the switch to 22q, even if you have used an older name for years. It may seem tough at first, but over time, “22q11.2 deletion” will seem like second nature.
  • Educate those around you. Tell teachers, occupational and physical therapists, speech and language pathologists and all of your children’s medical specialists, about the effort to adopt a single name. These specialists represent a crucial gateway to diagnosis. Getting the word out to these key professionals will ensure that newly identified children and adults go home with the correct name!
  • Support the Foundation’s work – Your tax-deductible donation to the International 22q11.2 Foundation allows us to fund this and other initiatives that benefit people with the deletion or duplication and their families. You can donate online to help the foundation.

Pass it on! – Tell others in your 22q network about the Same Name Campaign. We can all make a difference! Download the Foundation’s slide presentation on the Same Name Campaign and present it to all who will listen.
