THE STORY:

Thank you, in advance, family and friends who have generously supported Jackapalooza and the LuMind Research Down Syndrome Foundation in the past. I, and LuMind RDS, greatly appreciate your continued support as LuMind continues to fund the most promising research that will lead to developing drug treatments to improve learning, memory and speech in individuals with Down Syndrome so that they may participate more successfully in school, lead more active and independent lives and avoid the early onset of Alzheimer's Disease. Your involvement is helping to bring about groundbreaking advances including clinical trials that address DS cognition and a treatment with the potential to benefit the broader population of individuals that may develop Alzheimer’s disease as well as the DS community. As many of you are aware, my son, Jack, is essentially non-verbal and struggles with some of the most basic daily tasks. Yet he perseveres so hard to be understood and to grow and be independent. Jack’s brother, Clark, has said, “I would like Jack to have this medicine because I think he has a lot to say to me and if this will help him tell me, then I want to listen.” Like Jack’s brothers and other families, I look forward to a future of increased opportunity for my Jack and his buddies. With supporters like you at our side, we have a lot of hope that there will be a treatment to help Jack improve his quality of life and reach his greatest potential. Having said that...it's time for a Dance Off (and some aerobics, too). Warmest regards, Barbara M. Villalobos, Jack's Mom
