Dear Friend of the Jerome Lejeune Foundation,
Today we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the discovery of trisomy 21, the genetic cause of Down syndrome, by Dr. Jerome Lejeune!
We are honored to carry on Jerome Lejeune’s life work through scientific research, care, and advocacy for those with Down syndrome. Over the years, we’ve proudly followed the trail blazed by Dr. Lejeune, from research projects and clinical studies, to training and lobbying.
In honor of this special occasion, we’ve created a video to celebrate Down syndrome advocacy. Please watch and share to show your support for individuals with Down syndrome!
Thank you for taking part in the work of the Jerome Lejeune Foundation. Only with the help of individuals like you can the United States gain greater support and acceptance of children and adults with Down syndrome!
P.S. Please consider donating today to help us do our best work as we care and advocate for those with Down syndrome!
