Welcome to our 2017 Grand Strand Buddy Walk® fundraising page for Easton's Entourage!
I would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves, our amazing story and most importantly Easton!
This is Easton....
He is a twin, he rolls all over the house, mimics sounds you make, loves his walker and just assisted standing in general and playing with his toys. His newest "thing" is blowing raspberries and by "thing" I mean this child wakes up doing it and falls asleep still blowing raspberries!
The reason I am telling you all this is because on October 10,2016 right after Hurricane Matthew came through our boys decided they could not wait another day to make their big debut! This was the happiest day of our lives and it was also the day we discovered that Easton had Down Syndrome. We knew from day one our lives would be forever changed and we would be facing challenges that not all parents face , because we were going to be twin parents. I had no idea how remarkable our new journey would be! But, on that very day as I listened to the doctor tell me our son had Down Syndrome and describe the common features associated with it, my mind wandered. I started creating fears. Fears that , at the time, I thought were the reality of Down Syndrome. Turns out, I was uneducated. I wish I knew then what I do now. Easton has changed all of our lives and has sent us on a journey that I never expected but it was been the most amazing journey ever!
Easton, along with the other families I connected with by joining the Grand Strand Down Syndrome Society helped dismiss our fears and educate us. So on October 21st we are walking to show our support for our son, Easton, and more than 400,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the U.S. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer to ensuring that every individual will have the opportunity to reach his or her potential.
Our fundraising efforts will support local programs and services, as well as National Down Syndrome Society advocacy and public awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
Make your tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping us achieve our goal. Thank you for your support!
