Three connections . . .
Many years ago my family worked with another family so they could continue with their careers. It was a great time in our lives, having her with us during the day.
Mom worked at a nursing home and became fast friends with a resident that had been born with Down syndrome. Mom spoke of her often, still does.
While I was raising awareness concerning Alzheimer’s disease, I met a family and we became friends. In 2017 they became the proud parents of a little boy who was born with Down syndrome. He and his big brother are my little friends.
I began raising both awareness and money on March 1, 2018, concerning Down syndrome.
