THE UP OF DOWN:  AN INSIGHT

INTO THE WORLD

OF DOWN SYNDROME 

Typically a 90-minute panel presentation that includes a self-advocate.   A recent conference on the progress of research, part of this project, brought together scientists and self-advocates for a very special and meaningful event.

 

OUR MISSION 

To further awareness of the contributions and needs of individuals with Down syndrome and to raise funds for advocacy, service, and research organizations.

OUR VISION

Alexander's Angels envisions a world where individuals with Down syndrome are not defined by their disability but by their individuality.

 

OUR GOAL 

To promote recognition and better understanding of the often overlooked attributes of individuals with Down syndrome by highlighting their abilities through events that showcase to the community-at-large special talents within the Down syndrome community.

Down Syndrome International selected the date for WDSD (3/21)--being the 21st day of the 3rd month-- to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.

WHAT IS DOWN SYNDROME?

Each human cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes; one copy inherited from each parent forms a pair for a total of 46.   In Down syndrome, each cell in the body has three copies of the 21st chromosome instead of two for a total of 47.

WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY

March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day, a global awareness day officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.  The date was chosen by Down Syndrome International (DSI) to represent Down syndrome, the triplication of the 21st chromosome.
