Growing old with Alfred

Good to see The Chromodiversity Clinic making headway and reaching out to the people most impacted by genetic differences. As someone who has written extensively about my own experience, I can honestly say when opportunities arise that afford us the opportunity to reach out to an audience beyond social media chat rooms, we should grasp them with both hands. The hope is that our life experiences will make someone else’s journey to acceptance that little bit easier to manage.

In this podcast, the host speaks with Alfred Jonker, the President of the Dutch Klinefelter Association and a visionary in his approach to supporting people with common chromosomal differences.

In this first episode of two, you’ll hear the story of how he found out about his own Extra X, the challenges he faced and coping mechanisms he discovered growing up with a chromosome diversity, and why he believes early detection is the key to unlocking better futures.
