Gotta love Albert!

Check out this press release about the new clinic for ADULTS with Down syndrome soon to be opened at St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield (St. Louis metro area). 

I’ve known about this project for a while since my sister works for St. Luke’s (I call her my favorite big wig…I’m so proud!) but it’s new news that Albert Pujols has signed on in cooperation with this new clinic.  That is exciting!

Many of you may know that Albert has a daughter with DS, and he has a foundation here in the St. Louis area, the Pujols Family Foundation, that does alot of things for people with DS and their families. They are very popular among the DS community in these parts!

How exciting is it to have an ADULT clinic designated for people with DS?!?  So many of us cherish our DS Centers for our kids, and it’s great to see a need noticed to focus on their health after they’ve “aged out” of the pediatric practice system.  Yay St. Luke’s!  Yay Albert!  Go Cards!

  3. That is awesome news! I mean about the clinic opening...but Pujols being a part of it is great too. We hope to move back to the St. Louis area in 10-15 years. Great to know that there will be somewhere for Lily to go.

    ...I'm hoping Albert is too busy in the month of October to meet you though...I'm selfish...I want to see him in the SERIES!!!! Go Cards!
