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.
