We’ll be celebrating Gastroschisis Awareness Day throughout the months of July and August. Find an event near you! This year on July 30th, Gastroschisis Awareness Day, Avery’s Angels Gastroschisis Foundation will celebrate our 11 year anniversary. Over the years, AAGF has been working hard towards our goal of Awareness, Research, and Support. We’ve come a long way. The community support for AAGF has been tremendous since our start and we have been able to impact so many global lives with the help of so many active volunteers, supporters, and fans. We look forward to be able to continue to service the gastroschisis world through providing family support, promoting medical research, and community awareness. The rates of occurrence of gastroschisis have risen steadily and our cause is more important than ever. Help us this year by supporting your local Awareness Day event.
