Valentine's Day is naturally a day that is connected with hearts. While we are thinking about hearts, we always think about the heart that needs our help and support the most - Clare's heart.
"The Williams Syndrome Assocation was formed in 1982 by, and for, families of individuals with Williams syndrome. The WSA is the only group in the U.S. devoted exclusively to improving the lives of individuals with Williams syndrome and their families. The WSA supports research into all facets of the syndrome, and the development of the most up to date educational materials regarding Williams syndrome." (from the WSA website) The WSA has helped our family personally by hosting events where we have had the opportuntiy to meet other individuals with Williams syndrome and their families. The WSA also bestows grants to researchers such as Dr. Carolyn Mervis, who we took Clare to see this past November.
With your help, our dream of a better future for individuals with Williams syndrome can become a reality. Please send your love to Clare this Valentine's Day in the form of a contribution to the Williams Syndrome Association Valentine Fund. You can view Clare's Page here. Happy Valentine's Day!
