Stories of Impact
Our patients and their families are at the center of what we do. Here are some of their stories.
Chomedy has a busy and active life. Like many of us, she’s had to adapt to life during COVID-19. Her mother is grateful for the Adult Down Syndrome Center’s virtual meetings, which have taught Chomedy independence in a technological world.
Maria Kotsinis is a member of the Council of Advisors for Advocate Medical Group’s Adult Down Syndrome Center in Park Ridge, IL. She and her son, Nicholas, share what the Center means to them and why they’re so grateful to have this specialized care in their community.
Linda and Mike Mussallem are loyal supporters of the Center. Linda’s brother, Bob, and Mike’s brother, George (pictured left), both had Down syndrome. Inspired by their brothers, Linda and Mike are generously donating $2.75 million through the George and Bob Fund to support our new campaign.
Speech and language development was a challenge for Quintin, but he and his family found help and support through the Adult Down Syndrome Center.
One of the first words he learned was “mom.”
