The Noonan families in the UK are sad to hear of the passing of Jacqueline Noonan. Her work in understanding and writing about this complex and variable condition has improved the lives of many families across the world. Not only that she has inspired another generation of medical professionals who are taking forward the task of understanding Noonan Syndrome. In that sense her legacy will truly live on. Our thoughts are with all her family and friends in the USA at this difficult time. Please know that over 600 Noonan families in the United Kingdom are thinking of you all Ian Legg, Chair of Trustees, Noonan Syndrome Association

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon Dr. Noonan May she rest in peace. Thank you for all that you have done for that Noonan syndrome community.
Dr. Noonan, you were a saint & we wish we would have been blessed to meet you. We had a little boy with NS seven years ago. To have a diagnosis , really thanks to you, brought us much comfort. We also have our son’s cord blood and tissue, which we can now donate to NS research, thanks to your work identifying NS.
My condolences to Dr. Noonan's family. Thank you for sharing her with us, those affected or parents of those affected with Noonan Syndrome. My daughter, Katie Ryan, was diagnosed by her and was able to have interactions and many pictures with Dr. Noonan at several of the family and scientific conferences. It was such a pleasure to know her and to thank her personally for her great work. She truly loved our kids and would even recall their names when seeing them again every few years. We LOVE you Dr. Noonan and you will always be an angel in our eyes and now you are doing new work with your Heavenly wings. Thank you so much and God bless.
