Down syndrome is the most commonly occurring chromosomal condition.  One in every 733 babies is born with Down syndrome.  Down syndrome occurs when an individual has three, rather than two, copies of chromosome 21.  This additional genetic material alters the course of development and causes the characteristics associated with Down syndrome.  Down syndrome occurs in all races and economic levels.  Today there are 400,000 people in the United States with Down syndrome.

I hope you’ll join us. We look forward to seeing you on
