The majority of people with Down syndrome are healthy and active.  As with all of us, there will be challenges and discouraging moments, but each can be dealt with as it arises.

Although people with Down syndrome are more likely to have certain conditions, they are not different in nature from illnesses that arise in the typical population and they will be treated in the same way.

All people with Down syndrome will benefit from a healthy lifestyle and the opportunity to lead active lives.
