This event is inspired by, and in honor of, our son Joe. When Joe was born in August 2003, we were surprised to learn he had Down Syndrome. Even more surprising was finding out he had a serious heart defect. The first few months were difficult. Joe came home on oxygen after 5 days in the Good Samaritan Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. He soon developed congestive heart failure as a result of the defect, which was managed with medicines while we worked hard to help him gain weight prior to surgery. At 5˝ months of age he had open heart surgery to repair his heart.

Joe’s recovery from this major surgery amazed us and he hasn’t stopped amazing us since. Joe is a happy and healthy 11 year old who swims, rides his bike, runs, plays all sports and enjoys school. In all of this, the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati (DSAGC) has been there to support us. Within hours of his birth, they provided informational packets to us, our family, and our friends. We have attended monthly meetings with guest speakers on a variety of topics for parents of children with Down syndrome. We have borrowed dozens of books, audio tapes, and DVDs from their free lending library on a wide range of topics from heart defects, to sign language, to financial planning. We have benefitted so much from the friendships, support, and education that are all a result of this great organization. We are honored that the DSAGC continues to celebrate Joe and all individuals with Down syndrome. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday May 21st at the Clermont County YMCA!
