#YesICan World Down Syndrome Day 2018


Even though it seems we just celebrated New Year's Day, yesterday marked the first day of spring.  Something very hard to notice here on the east coast where we have a foot of snow.  But it was and that means today is March 21st and World Down Syndrome Day.  Trisomy 21 results when an individual is born with three copies of the twenty-first chromosome.  Therefore each year on 3/21 we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day.
