One day PEOPLE WITH DOWN SYNDROME WILL LEAD THE WAY.
One day BREAKTHROUGH TREATMENTS AND THERAPIES WILL COME.
One day starts today.
DownSyndrome Achieves works to maximize the health and potential of every individual with Down syndrome by championing the development of critical research capabilities needed to better understand Down syndrome and to accelerate breakthrough discoveries.
At DownSyndrome Achieves, we believe that people with Down syndrome will lead healthier, more active and independent lives tomorrow through the results of breakthrough translational research made possible today. That's why we work collaboratively with Down syndrome research organizations and the community to fully develop critical research initiatives set out in the Trisomy 21 Research Centers of Excellence Act of 2011.
We envision a world where people with Down syndrome no longer face the health concerns they do today. Imagine a future that includes preventative care to protect people with DS from Alzheimer's Disease, childhood leukemia or heart defects, or provides therapeutic options so that these conditions, and others, can be safely and effectively treated. This is our vision and hope, and we are working to make this a reality for all people.
DownSyndrome Achieves depends on the support of individuals and corporations. Your gift will help provide the critical infractructure researchers need to make a tangible difference in the lives of people with Down syndrome.
