I am helping San Diego Down Syndrome. Org fundraise to open Gigi's Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Center. As you know our wonderful daughter, Isabella has Down syndrome. Due to her diagnosis her health, heart, hearing, speech, physical abilities, and cognitive funtioning are all affected. When Isabella was first born we were very scared, wondering what her life would look like... what our life as a familiy would turn into. But when you get to know Isabella, you fall in love with her. She is beautiful, smart, cheerful, spunky, and sweet. She takes longer to learn new things, however we are amazed to see her understanding and potential. Isabella is almost 4 and knows all her ABCs, 1-20, color, shapes, and is beginning to sight read. She attends Pre-K along with typically developing peers, and in most ways keeps up just fine.
Gigi's Playhouse is a nonprofit achievement center for individuals of all ages with Down Syndrome, which has several locations throughout the United States and Mexico. GiGi's Playhouse offers up to 35 FREE programs! Isabella would benefit from their programs such as music, dance, literacy, and math tutoring.
Currently, there are no locations in California. We are looking forward to the first location in Califoirnia, opening up right here in San Diego. Isabella needs GiGi's Playhouse so her educational and theraputic needs can be met. Every dollar we receive from this fundraiser will go directly towards making Gigi's Playhouse a reality. Thank you for your support.
