Hi, I'm Ferrial!
Welcome to my 'Walk for Ferrial' website. I am 4 years old and I was diagnosed with Turner Syndrome at 6 months of age.
Walk for Ferrial was the idea of a 16 year old high school student who wanted to do something to raise awareness for Turner Syndrome. Each fall a fundraiser is held - Walk for Ferrial - and proceeds are donated to Tuner Syndrome Society for research.
I hope to see you in November at the next Walk for Ferrial.
