October is a busy month

Not only is it breast cancer awareness month, but it’s also Down Syndrome Awareness Month, with Buddy Walks taking place all over the country to help fund programs that help parents and families affected by down syndrome. I would encourage you to click on the above link, where you can find out just what Down Syndrome is and how you can help people affected by this diagnosis. If you’d like a more personal look at how down syndrome affects people, I would encourage you to go HERE where a good friend of mine shares the struggles, challenges, and triumphs she faces everyday with her beautiful daughter, who also happens to have down syndrome.
