About us

“When my second son Dave was born in 1999, amongst the joy of having a second son, part of me was saddened by his right hand missing his three middle fingers. When Dave was 4 months old we met with a hand surgeon who told us that his condition was called ‘symbrachydactyly’. Dave had a hand operation when he was 10 months. His thumb had a lower bone missing, so a bone was taken out of his right middle toe and fused into his thumb. I decided to start a local Aussie support group for people with hand differences, as most hand support groups were located either in the UK or USA. By 2005, a website was established and since then membership has been slowly increasing around Australia. Every year, the Foundation organises various events nationally which brings so many new families together to share their inspirational stories.”
