The members of and donors to Research Down Syndrome are doing something great--researching a highly-misunderstood disease while at the same time reaching out those affected by Down Syndrome on a practical, day-to-day level. First and foremost they fund scientific research into causes of, and therapies for, Down Syndrome. Their support for the sciences and for those with and affected by Down Syndrome has done more than they probably know. Cheers to them, and may their future endeavors be even more helpful and successful.
