My daughter got diagnosed with Trisomy 18 before she was born, she was born 10/12/18 and passed away from trisomy 13 10/19/2018. They say this chromosome abnormality is not compatible with life, I want to so do a community event to let people know they can get tested for this early on in pregnancy or even beforehand and that this can be prevented so parents like us don’t have to have their dreams shattered because of it. I want to raise awareness of this disease in the community and let people know this is not the end of the world and as a community we can fight this and raise money together for more rese
Why should you sponsor?
I would like for someone to sponsor this event for the first time, hopefully we can do this annually if the turn out is how we expect. We will be raising money for research to go straight to the trisomy 18 foundation and awareness in the community. We may not be able to change the whole world but maybe someone’s world. And for me that’s good enough.
I am a mother to a beautiful trisomy 18 angel in heaven. I want to raise awareness for trisomy 18 in our community and to better research.
