Governor Brad Little has issued a proclamation to raise awareness about trisomy and to encourage Idahoans to learn more about the condition and the help available to families. We applaud this life-affirming action by the Governor.
So what is trisomy? It is a genetic anomaly, in which there is a presence of a third copy of any of the 23 different chromosomes which comprise our DNA. Down Syndrome is one example of this condition.
People wishing to learn about the condition, and options available should visit www.trisomy.org.
