The Williams Syndrome Foundation was extremely sorry to hear that our patron, Sir George Cooper, died last week at the age of 94.
Sir George and Lady Cooper founded the WSF 40 years ago and worked tirelessly to engage research into WS and to provide help and support to WS families.
We owe them a huge debt of gratitude.
