About Us

The DDX3X Foundation is a non-profit founded in 2016 to help find a cure for the DDX3X Gene Mutation. As part of its mission, the Foundation will support existing research, education, and treatment programs focused on the DDX3X Gene Mutation. The Foundation has three primary functions: Research, Support for Families, and Raising Public Awareness of the DDX3X Gene Mutation.

Formed by parents of children with the DDX3X mutation, we understand the daily trials and struggles associated with this disorder. Many of the people we work with went years without knowing the cause of their child’s condition. Now this group exists to educate and support you.



Our Mission

The DDX3X mutation is a new discovery with a small patient base. In order to encourage research, families must be advocates and must be easily reached by potential researchers. The DDX3X Foundation and the registry will be critical in meeting researchers’ needs. Our mission is to spread awareness of DDX3X mutation, support families, and encourage research.
