What will IMDSA use this money for?
New membership to IMDSA is only $25.00 USD. Your membership dues will be put to good use! A large percent of the medical community has never even heard of mosaic Down syndrome. And a larger percent of parents and educators have no knowledge of MDS. As a parent of a child with MDS, many are confused and do not know what this diagnosis means for their child. With your donation, we will be able to provide information to people around the world about MDS! These funds will also be used to enable us to provide an educational conference for all those interested in MDS. In addition to educating the public about MDS, we also provide support to families of children with Mosaic Down syndrome. With this support system, parents are able to interact with other parents having the same concerns and often find solutions to their problems when raising their child with MDS. You will find more than support with our organization; you will find a whole new family when you join IMDSA!
