Down Syndrome

Is when a person has 47 chromosomes instead of the normal 46. Kids with down Syndrome as a very noticeable appearance. They can vary from mild to sever. The head maybe smaller than normal and abnormally shaped. The inside of the eye may be rounded instead of pointed. They normally have a decrease in muscle tone from birth.

I believe it is sad for this to happen to anyone but they cant help it. It is interesting how it works in the body. How it affects the appearance of the body. They are shorter and takes them longer to learn how to do things. They make fundraisers for the kids and people that have down syndrome. I think it is nice to do what we can to help those people have what other people have.
