THE STORY:

Demi for DSRTF

You all know Demi and her desire to go to college, drive a car, get married and live independently.  I believe the "plus 15 project" and DSRTF could enable her to accomplish these goals.  I am excited about the research that is being done and hope you will support our efforts to raise money for the mission.

Donna

What is plus15?

plus15 is the campaign to improve learning, memory and speech for people with Down syndrome. plus15 will make it possible for people with Down syndrome to live more independent lives--with more opportunities than ever before.

The life expectancy of someone living with Down syndrome has more than doubled over the past decade. Unfortunately, their cognitive abilities have not improved at a similar pace. Research scientists are very close to finding ways to improve the learning, memory and speech of people living with Down syndrome, but we need your help!

Federal funding for Down syndrome research is only $55 per person. That's about 95% less on average than what the government spends on research for similar disabilities (check out the chart to the left to see the comparison). 

When you give to the plus15 campaign, 100% of your money will do directly to funding cognitive research at major research centers around the country, including Johns Hopkins Medical Center, Stanford University, University of San Diego and University of Arizona.

plus15 is an initative of the Down Syndrome Research and Treatment Foundation.
