Monday morning Mark attended the L.A. City Council meeting to support the Down Syndrome Association of Los Angeles in trying to get the City of L.A. to recognize the month of October as Down Syndrome Awareness Month. He and dozens of families, including our very own Intern Darlene and her adorable daughter Bella, showed up to show their support. Watch Mark get emotional when he speaks about this cause at the city council meeting in the video below at about 44:00.
We're happy to report that thanks to their efforts, from here forward the City of L.A. will recognize October as Down Syndrome Awareness Month. Good job Mark & Darlene! We're very proud of you!
