Raising support for Mito and Down Syndrome

As we come to the close of another week I want to draw your attention to a couple events that you many not be aware of. That this week- September 21-27, has been designated by many states across the nation as Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week. Various events are being held to bring awareness to, and garnish support for the treatment of, and research for, Mitochondrial Disease. To learn more about this disease, and how you can help put a smile on the face of a very sick child please click here.

If you live in the Alpharetta, GA area I encourage you to consider attending the 2nd Annual Music for Megan, Concert for a Cure (benefiting the
UMDF). It is a fabulous event for the entire family! To learn more, or to make a donation to help fund research to a cure.” please visit

Another exciting event that is taking place this weekend is The LADSS 3rd Annual Down Syndrome Buddy Walk. My parents have been working diligently for the past few months in an effort to make this year’s walk an enjoyable event for the entire family! This year’s event will feature door prizes, raffles, an obstacle course, Ronald McDonald, face painting, a balloon artist, cookies and of course the 1-mile awareness walk. If you are in the Pontiac, IL area I encourage you to join us for a fun filled afternoon. For more information please
