Did you know? Down Syndrome fact

Did you know?

Life expectancy for people with Down syndrome has increased dramatically in recent decades - from 25 in 1983 to 60 today.

Be gentle.


  1. My niece was born in October with down syndrome and heart defects! Not sure its the down syndrome that created the lack of life expectancy but possibly the other conditions that come with it. Medical advances have come so far and helps! Which could account for the increase in life expectancy.all this is good!

  2. Congratulations on the birth of your niece. I am sure she will bring much joy to your famly.
