Since Joel was born in 2001, he has inspired and entertained us. He so inspired me that, in 2004, the first DS awareness walk was organized in Paris with an incredible turnout. Now a 17 year old young man, I (and his family) have begun to see glimpses of adulthood and all the challenges and opportunities it will bring. Joel's Giants will be raising money for RRVDSS so that more teens and adults like him will continue to be supported and championed.
Fundraising Goal: $5,000
