Life is a daily struggle for alot of people, but more so for those living with Down Syndrome and their families. Since the inception of the L.I. Buddy walk in 2007 my family and I have been showing our support by walking, donating and volunteering our time for this terrific organanization. Esther Gomez and her team (Alexander's Angel's) do a fantastic job every year. Not only are they raising money and awareness for this cause, Alexander's Angel's help bring together families that are going through the same issues. It allows them to bond and share there problems and concerns with each other, it is a family of sorts and I am happy to be a part of it. Maria Polizzi
