Spread awareness on World Down Syndrome Day

A resolution to designate 21/3 as “World Down Syndrome Day”, to be observed
every year beginning in 2012, was adopted by consensus by the United
Nations General Assembly in December 2011. The resolution was proposed and
promoted by Brazil, and co-sponsored by 78 UN Member States.

Tomorrow is World Down Syndrome Day. Please read my web page

and help clear the myths associated with this condition (not disease).

Lots of people still use the term 'Down's Syndrome which is not actually
appropriate. Even some of the associations are named as Down's. Help spread
awareness and share with everyone
