October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, a time dedicated to celebrating the abilities of people with Down syndrome. And we can think of no better person to celebrate than Elyse Mundelein.
She was born with Down syndrome but has never let that slow her down. She’s an advocate for Down syndrome awareness, is a teaching assistant at a university and holds two part-time jobs.
The last thing she had time for was a major health crisis, but suddenly, Elyse found herself in a fight for her life. What happened next is a true story of Surviving and Thriving.
