October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month. Down's Syndrome occurs when an individual has three instead of two copies of the 21st chromosome. Be sure to support your National Down Syndrome Society local chapter and make a donation or sponsor a team for the Buddy Walk! Over the last thirteen years, the Buddy Walk has become an advocacy event for Down's syndrome. It raises awareness and brings great people together for a great cause.
We want to thank everyone who supported Team Lucy Kate for this year's Buddy Walk. It was a complete success! We look forward to increasing our fundraising efforts next year when aren't spending so much time in the hospital.
We also want to thank all of the nurses and doctors who aided in Lucy's recovery. You know who you are and we can never thank you enough for everything you have done for Lucy and our family.
Lucy thanks you from the bottom of her fixed heart.
