Join TEAM SIENA and our extraordinary journey to raise awareness for individuals with different abilities and to become their advocate!
I found out while pregnant that my daughter, Siena, was to have Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) and some very serious medical issues resulting from the over-expression of this chromosome. When my daughter entered my life four years ago, my world changed for the better. During my whole life I labeled individuals with "disabilities" as "disabled," but when I saw the extraordinary strength and ability in my own 3 pound daughter, my view point has shifted. I am now bursting with enthusiasm to show the world the value of these individuals and help those individuals thrive in awareness of their respected position in the community.
Please support my efforts as an advocate for the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.
For every step I take and every dollar I raise, I am helping to create a culture that fully includes the more than 400,000 Americans with Down syndrome. Last year, more than $13 million dollars was raised by more than 305,000 Buddy Walk® participants worldwide.
Your support for the Baltimore Buddy Walk®, either by walking with me or by making a donation, will help honor and celebrate people with Down syndrome.
