Gannon’s Gladiators Members
Team Walk Years: 1
Welcome to our 2018 Houston Buddy Walk® team fundraising page for Gannon's Gladiators! We are walking to show our support for our child and more than 400,000 other individuals with Down syndrome in the U.S.! Every dollar we raise brings us one step closer to ensuring that our child and every individual will have the opportunity to reach their potential.
Gannon was born December 1, 2017. He has two older brothers, Weston who is 7, Korbyn who is 3, and also has a twin brother Greyson. Gannon was dianosed with trisomy 21 at birth, and has already undergone his first heart surgery. He is a tough guy, with a smile that will light up a room. As Gannons mom, my goal is to not only help him reach his full potential with development and therapy, but also advocate and educate on his behalf to those who dont realize what an amazing gift he is, and all others like him are to this world. When they call the down syndrome community "the lucky few", i definitely live by that, how lucky am I to be chosen by God to be this amazing little boys mom?!
Our Efforts for 2018 Buddy Walk:
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.
Make your tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping us achieve our goal. Thank you for your support!

I’ve been training for two days on at home care. Checking blood sugars, doing g tube feedings and tube insertion, and emergency only glucagon shots. Hoping this means they will let us go home by Fathers Day🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼
Taking it day by day. We still don’t know how long we will be here. They switched his formula today to one that is lactose free, hoping to settle his tummy. Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
Update! Gannon is doing better, his blood sugars are still up and down. Some positives: they took his IV out, they reduced the number of sugar pricks per day, and added a probiotic to hopefully help with lingering gastric issues from the stomach bug. Hoping we get discharged within the coming week 🤞🏼🤞🏼
Update on Gannon. He has not been able to take hardly any formula by mouth, which is causing his blood sugar levels to remain critically low...so he’s now on a G tube to assist with getting his feeds in. No real answers yet... just continued prayers #cantwaittogohome #getwellgannon
Please God, guide the doctors to get Gannon well so that we can go home and get back to life #readyforhome #missingtheboys #cryitout #exhausted #prayingforgannon
We’ve had a very long night. After not being able to keep anything down, we are back at the hospital to be safe. 😷
Things since we have been home from the hospital have been rough.. first Weston gets a stomach bug, then Korbyn gets it, then yesterday K gets stung in the face by a wasp which he is allergic to, then this morning Patrick and I woke up with the stomach bug... having a baby fresh out of the hospital around this is not good!!! Thank God for my mother in law, she is taking the babies so that we don’t risk Gannon getting it. I’m just wandering when things will start looking up 😥
