Conquer The Canyon

On September 23 - 26, 2010, Team Angelman Syndrome Foundation (ASF) will be training and traveling to Conquer The Grand Canyon.

Angelman Syndrome is a genetic disorder. Characteristic features of this condition include developmental delay, speech impairment, and problems with movement and balance (ataxia).

Angels have a happy demeanor and laugh easily. While Angels cannot speak, they do have much to say.

My 9 year old niece, Jade, has Angelman Syndrome. She is non-verbal but communicates using the American Sign Language (ASL) she is learning.

I wish I could particpate in this but it's a month away from my trip to Athens. I hope they offer this opportunity next year.
