Register with CDO
If you or a family member has been diagnosed with a rare chromosome disorder, please consider joining CDO. Each new registration application helps us learn more. Using a newly introduced web application CDO has the capability to specifically categorize chromosomal karyotypes and finally begin to understand more about the genes involved in each rare chromosome rearrangement. We hope to eventually improve specifically tailored treatments to help affected individuals. Join CDO here.
CDO too offers beautiful awareness bracelets through Hearts Creations on Etsy.com customized with the chromosome number of your choice. Each purchase you make from any of the above programs returns a small donation to CDO.

Heres a delightful and easy way you can raise money for CDO. The Mill Fudge Factory is a long time friend of CDO. They are offering a way that you can delight others with their delicious all natural fudge (they even have a natural sugar-free chocolate fudge!) while earning up to 30% commissions for CDO. It works a bit like a Girl Scout cookie campaign. You need a minimum of 5 family/friends to go out and take orders. They provide all the materials you need to make it very easy (order sheets, color photos and ingredient lists, posters). You set up a schedule and the fudge just about sells itself. Right now, you can line up a campaign for Mothers Day delivery. What better time of year!!! Fudge for mothers, grandmothers, sweethearts, kids, teachers... well, who wouldnt love fudge as a gift! So its very easy to get multiple orders. Take a look HERE for more details and get in touch with Susan (a CDO grandmother) by email or 413-637-2643 to talk about how you can participate.
