HELPING GIRLS WITH TURNER'S SYNDROME ACHIEVE THEIR FULL POTENTAL

Our Objective

Our mission is to help as many girls with Turner’s Syndrome as possible by linking them to the support they need.

Whilst there is some help out their for parents there is very little for the rest of the family. Speaking to STV news in 2015, Tracey Connelly stated, “I was diagnosed with Turner’s Syndrome as an infant and although the doctors were there every step of the way, as I got older I realised that no one had asked any of my three brothers how they felt. There was no real support or information available to them to help them understand the condition. Ragdolls UK was set up to be inclusive of everyone who feels they could use a friendly ear.”

When I read that number I almost cried. Sure I have known Turner’s Syndrome was rare but this was a wake-up call for sure.

Living with Turner's Syndrome; by Tracey Connelly

Ragdolls founder discusses growing up with Turner's Syndrome and the challenges she faces.

We are our own normal by Nicole Hawley

Growing up, I had so many questions about myself. From as early as I could remember, I knew I was different, but couldn’t articulate why and my parents wouldn’t talk to me about it. If even they couldn’t say the truth about myself out loud, I felt that it must be pretty bad and shameful. I internalized those things and believed them. The message I got was I needed to figure out how to deal with these things out on my own- I couldn’t ask anyone about them or reveal what made me different.

Who's On The Line?

Our support lines are now open for sufferers of Turner's Syndrome, their families, friends and anyone who may wish to learn a little more about the condition. 

Turner's Syndrome and Reproductive Decisions; by Kriss Fearnon

My name is Kriss Fearon and I’m based at the Centre for Reproduction Research at De Montfort University in Leicester. My research is about reproductive decision making in the context of Turner Syndrome. I’m talking to women with TS about how they decide how to have a family. I’m also talking to mums of girls with TS about how they make decisions that could affect their daughter, such as whether to freeze their own eggs for their daughter to use in later life.

A Message of Hope; by Anna J

We aim to reach as many TS girls as possible with our message of hope.
