My personal message:

Help me make a difference!

I am participating in Toronto's sixth annual Buddy Walk on behalf of my brother, Jean-Luca, to help raise awareness for Down Syndrome in our community as well as raise funds for The Down Syndrome Association of Toronto (DSAT). 

For anyone who thinks it’s easy, it’s not. But nothing worth having ever is. I would not be the person I am today if I didn’t have him in my life. He’s taught me how to laugh, how to be strong, how to push myself harder and how to love unconditionally. No one in this world has more love to give than him and I am proud to say that I am lucky enough to receive his love. He is the light of my life and I will love him forever and always. 

Please help me reach my fundraising goals. Every little bit helps more than words could ever express.

He’s a big deal .. his extra chromosome isn’t


The Down Syndrome Association of Toronto (DSAT) is a non-profit registered charitable organization established in 1987, consisting of passionate volunteer parents, siblings, friends and citizens who are devoted to improving the potential of people with Down syndrome. DSAT is a proud leader for raising awareness, equality and opportunity for people with Down syndrome.
