Christine and Greg, Gregory's warrior parents are lacing up their running shoes for their next race, the Tucson Holualoa Half Marathon on December 10th, all to benefit their son Gregory who has Down Syndrome. It is their utmost belief that DS cognition research will pave the way in developing therapeutic medicines to improve the lives ALL people that are afflicted with DS. It is a known FACT that ALL people with DS struggle with intellectual disabilities to some degree, and by the time the reach adulthood, Alzheimer's disease is wrecking havoc on their brains. Much progress has been made but more is needed. Cognitive medicines are needed to treat DS, the time is now, to join in and help this most needed cause. DS research is drastically underfunded by the NIH, so much is left to organizations like Lumind to fill the gap where our government has failed us. It is about time to let all know that they are serious: DS research is WAY UNDERFUNDED and they want to fight for their son so he can receive the needed medications to help him have a life with less struggles and become a productive member of society and TRULY be able to live INDEPENDENTLY! He won't attain this goal unless they get more funding for DS Cognition research!! Please help them by donating what ever you can, no donation is too small!! Thank you for your support!! Sweet Little Gregory is so worth it!!
