Meet the Mother- Daughter duo on a MISSION to Bring Awareness to Down Syndrome
Precious, a fighter since birth, was born via C-Section on May 3, 2001. She has experienced much trauma since birth, but she was a fighter then and is still a fighter 20 years later. She experienced respiratory distress, swallowed meconium during the birthing process and spent two weeks in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). While in NICU she had a platelet transfusion. On her journey, Precious has been diagnosed with many illnesses such as Hyperthyroidism (Graves? Disease) which is uncommon with Down syndrome, Insulin Resistance, Apraxia of Speech, ADHD, Asthma, and Seizure Disorder. She uses an adaptive stroller due to having weakness in her left side, and she is not able to walk for long periods of time.
