Since the very first Buddy Walk, many of my family and friends have supported me by their love, donations, coming to Villanova for the Buddy Walk, and their prayers. Team Steven C has been one of the top fundraising teams each of those fifteen years!
This year I graduated from high school. I did very well in classes and was on the varsity basketball team for the past three years as manager. I will return to Spring-Ford High School for two more years training for a job or college when I'm 21. I could not have done these things if I was not healthy and did not have the help of Dr. Pipan and the others at CHOP.
I hope to see you on October 1 at Villanova or if you can't join us, be with us in spirit. If you can help me reach my goal of $3,000 it would help the Trisomy 21 Center at CHOP to help lots of other families and babies born with Down syndrome. Thank you!
How Can You Help?
By donating and helping me support:
Ongoing clinical care and coordination for children and adults with Down syndrome and their families
New assessment tools to identify potential issues and intervene early
Continuing education for families, medical providers and community members
