Re-gift for 321foundation


Warm Season Greetings to all of our friends!   We hope you're enjoying this beautiful time of the year with those you love.  

As you unwrap gifts this holiday season we have one request....if your child received a gift that you don't want them to have (perhaps loud drums or a paint set lol) or you received something you won't use, donate it!   We will gladly take your unwanted gifts for our 321 silent auction and raffle coming up in March!   Or if you would like to make a year-end donation, we will gladly accept.  

Thank you again for all of your support throughout the year.  We couldn't do what we do without all of you!   Happy Holidays!

It is Moyamoya Awareness Day!


It is Moyamoya Awareness Day!
Moyamoya is a rare disease that effects the arteries in the brain. It is progressive and there is no known cure. It's so important to spread awareness, because Moyamoya often presents as stroke, TIA, and seizures in children and young adults. Because it is not a common condition people are misdiagnosed and their symptoms of stroke, which would be taken seriously in an older person, are ignored or dismissed as stress. Most people with Moyamoya have surgery to help with symptoms,  but it is not a cure. Remember the name! And remember that anyone can have a stroke!  There is also a stat that 23% of all individuals with #MoyaMoya have #Downsyndrome.  

Three of our sweet friends, Erin, Daphne, and Franki all have Moyamoya.  Please keep all of them in your thoughts and help us raise awareness for this disease by sharing!!!!

Meeting with the Governor


We couldn't do what we do without amazing support from our friends in Legislative Hall...especially Governor Jack Markell.  He has always been a huge advocate for individuals with disabilities.  Today we had the honor to present the Governor with the 321foundation 2016 Champion of the Year Award.  We are so thankful for his support and are so grateful that we live in a state with such an amazing Governor!
