Full story:
Our daughter Charlotte is 20 years old and through the 100,000 Genome study we have just found out that she has a change in the gene MAP2K1 (formerly MEK1) which is probably the cause of her disability and that she most likely has CFC. However in Charlotte the condition mainly presents itself as complex epilepsy and a severe/profound learning disability with very few other manifestations. We would be particularly interested to hear from families whose family member fits this criteria. Thank you.
