Mile High Magazine 11/12/2023 Global Down Syndrome Foundation

Guest: Michelle Sie (See) Whitten, Co-Founder, President & Ceo, Global Down Syndrome Foundation Michelle started the Global Down Syndrome Foundation in 2009 with her parents because her daughter Sophia has down syndrome.  Their focus is on research and medical care. When a person is born with down syndrome, they have three copies chromosome 21 instead of 2.  In the 1980’s the average life span of a person with down syndrome was 28 and today it is 60.  The Global Down Syndrome Foundation has donated more than $32 million to establish the first Down syndrome research institute supporting over 400 scientists and over 2,200 patients with Down Syndrome From 33 States And 10 Countries.  Coming Up On November 18th Is The 15th Be Beautiful Be Yourself Fashion Show.  There are a handful of tickets left.  Another way to support is to sponsor a model.
