It was a picture-perfect fall day as nearly 90 people gathered at the New Hampshire shoreline for the New England family gathering September 18. More than 21 families of children with CdLS attended, many with friends and relatives in tow. For five of the families, it was their first time at a CdLS function.
National CdLS Awareness Day is this Saturday. Consider hanging an awareness flier in your local grocery store or sending a Letter to the Editor to your community newspaper (go to http://www.cdlsusa.org/awareness_day/Awareness_Day_2010.shtml to download materials). And if you haven’t already shared your CdLS story for our story bank, consider doing so. Send it to outreach@CdLSusa.org.
Just in time for Awareness Day, check out this video montage of children with CdLS:
A big thanks to Rachelle (mom to Joey) and her friend for putting this together.
