My name is Peter Coppola and I come from a family of seven.
My youngest sister Anna has Down's Syndrome.
I cannot imagine having anyone else as my little sister and I wouldn't change her one bit.
She brings out happiness in everyone around her and she loves being the life of the party.
I just heard that with advancements in prenatal testing, more pregnancies are ending in termination for babies with a Down syndrome diagnosis.
They don't know what they are missing! My little sister is truly a blessing.
I am running the Chicago marathon October 11, 2015 and I am trying to raise $1500 for the Ups for DownS organization. It is a parent directed, non-profit organization offering support, education and encouragement for parents, families and others who love and care about persons with Down Syndrome.
We need to get the word out that people with Down Syndrome love life just like everyone else and will bring a special blessing into the lives of the people around them.
If you would like to contribute, please...
Thank you for your support!
