We'll also meet Lauren Costabile, a public speaker and fierce advocate for Down syndrome. Lauren founded Hearts of Joy International, a nonprofit that provides life-saving heart surgery for individuals with Down syndrome. Due to poverty and lack of resources in developing countries, children are not given access to proper medical care. Hearts of Joy International helps children with Down syndrome reach their full potential in life by granting them access to open heart surgery as well as offering resources, support and education to communities, orphanages, caregivers and parents on the inherent dignity and value of the child. https://www.heartsofjoyinternational.com/
