A Special Message From "Jack Jack’s Wolf Pack"

We welcomed our sweet Jackson into this world in October 2020. We knew at 20 weeks that he was expected to have Trisomy 21, aka Down syndrome, but it wasn't until he was born and in the NICU that I was encouraged to connect with the Down Syndrome Guild of KC (now Down Syndrome Innovations). I'll be forever grateful to Amy Allison for her kindness and support and connecting me with amazing fellow T21 mamas and their families. We're excited for the walk this year and hope you'll consider joining us and donating so Down Syndrome Innovations can continue to provide support and resources for individuals like Jackson and their families. Hope to see you there!
