My friend Luke is the bravest person I know. He is the nicest kid I’ve ever met and despite his disability, he is an active member of our school. Luke has Down syndrome but that does not stop him from doing everything anyone else does and he has the best attitude out of anyone. Jackson G. #OneBraveThing
'Down's Syndrome Association' provides information and support on ALL aspects of living with Down's syndrome to ALL who need it. Down’s syndrome is a genetic condition caused by the presence of an extra chromosome 21 in the body’s cells. Down’s syndrome is not a disease, and it is not a hereditary condition. It occurs by chance at conception.
