BENEFITING: DESIGNER GENES-DOWN SYNDROME GROUP
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2011
Spend some time with someone with Down syndrome and you will very quickly find out they are more alike you than different. My daughter Catie is a young, beautiful, and vibrant girl. When she was born in 2004 we were told she had a heart defect that would need surgery and also had Down syndrome. I now have a passion in creating awareness about the joys of Down syndrome as it can be overwhelming when the words are first heard. The charity, Designer Genes-Down Syndrome Group makes it a priority to create awareness and projects in the local communities to encourage the acceptance of Down syndrome and others with disabilities.
