TEAM JAMESON - Captain: Monique Armann

Alexander's Angels envisions a world where individuals with Down syndrome are not defined by their disability but by their individuality.

Jameson rocked our world when he was born on October 28, 2002. Since then it's been a crazy, challenging, scary, joyous and amazing ride. When he was first born (and was our first born), it seemed so daunting to navigate all the therapies, his heart surgery at 8 mos, the specialists, schooling, iep's, etc. all while continuing to grow our family (with his two beautiful sisters Jasmine (15) and Lexie (13) who also rock our world).

When he was little, we worried about how we could teach him and what we could teach him, not knowing all the things he would be teaching us. Things like unlimited patience, perseverance, appreciating his "small" accomplishments (that made us feel like he climbed Mt. Everest!)

Because Jameson has Down Syndrome, he opened us up to a community of people we may have never been fortunate enough to know. His amazing therapists, teachers, friends and families we've met.It also showed us how much love and support we had from the people already in our lives.

Jameson has grown into a wonderful young man who we found has a passion for swimming and surfing. Even though he is non-verbal, he charms everyone he meets with his unbelievably infectious smile, his mischievous sense of humor, and gentle ways.

He showed us that every person that has an "extra" chromosome in this world, makes it "extra" special by being in it.

Thank you for your support!

Monique & Don

About the Buddy Walk

The Buddy Walk® was created by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.  The Buddy Walk® has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to over 250 each year with at least one in every state across the country and many abroad.  The Buddy Walk program is supported nationally by NDSS and organized at the local level by parent support groups and other organizations, schools, and motivated individuals. 

Alexander's Angels has been the organizer of the Buddy Walk® on Long Island since its inception in 2007.  In addition to sustaining the corporation, funds raised by Alexander's Angels benefit local programs and services, Down syndrome cognitive research, as well as local and national advocacy and awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.
