We want you to feel hopeful, positive and proud in understanding what living with Klinefelter syndrome might be like. Typically when you search the internet for information on Klinefelter syndrome, you find negative and depressing information that is usually 10 to  30 years old. This page is about the positive traits of Klinefelter syndrome and highlights those who continue to live wonderful lives all over the world. 

We have had the opportunity to meet over 400 people living with Klinefelter syndrome – 47 xxy in the last 2 years since our start in 2017.  We have traveled to Australia and New Zealand in order to spread more awareness and we plan to travel even more in the years to come. It continues to be a life-changing experience for all of us. One day we might have the chance to talk in person and we look forward to that day.

We originally searched the internet only to find this one article about Mathew.  A teenager who we have met in person many times. Mathew has now graduated from high school and is in the process of becoming an artist.  

Ryan Bregante says “All my life I have consider myself very creative, hands-on, visual and like to live life outside “the box”.  In today’s society, there is no “Normal” and we just need to embrace and accept our differences.” For those of us with Klinefelter syndrome like myself, we are truly amazing people who just happen to have an extra X chromosome.  Most adults who are diagnosed understand the difficulties in our lives as we live with stigmas, learning difficulties and medical issues. Our whole lives we have been told “who we are” by a medical professional who thinks they understand the day to day life of living with this condition.”

Being born this way does not define who you are or what you can and cannot do with your life. We want you to use this information to help educate those around you.  Word of mouth is the most powerful type of communication.
