Dear Friend of the Jerome Lejeune Foundation,
As we prepare to celebrate Christmas next week, I want to communicate how grateful I am for your partnership and support. What a year this has been!
It is an honor to serve as president of the board of directors of the Jerome Lejeune Foundation USA and to see first-hand how the life-changing mission of the foundation is making a true impact… due to YOU, our donors, friends and supporters.
As Madame Birthe Lejeune, wife of the late Dr. Jerome Lejeune, said when she traveled from France to visit with students, nonprofits, and churches this year: “In the last day of his life, Jerome was very anxious to find out who would be the ones to continue to fight. I think you are some of them, and I thank you with all my heart.”
I, too, thank you with all my heart.
Thank you for supporting our continued efforts to open a hospital dedicated to serving children and adults with Down syndrome in the United States.
Thank you for funding life-changing care and research that will impact the lives of the men and women with Down syndrome who we care so much about.
I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
