An email I received
Dear Friends, Allies, and Supporters of CDSS,
Just a quick note to advise each of you that tonight on Global News National (5:30 in local markets), Health Reporter Jennifer Tryon will be doing a piece on early prenatal testing for Down syndrome and other genetic arrangements. As part of this piece CDSS Board Member and Treasurer Heather Kaine of Toronto will be interviewed about her experience, and the experience of her family going through pre-natal testing, knowing (or at least knowing the very likelihood) that their daughter Emily would have Down syndrome well before she was born.
There is also a brief interview with me where I have the opportunity to talk about the very perilous future for citizens with Down syndrome in a climate of new pre-natal testing ( which only requires a sample of maternal blood as early as 7 weeks gestation).
Do let us know what you think.
Again with heartfelt thanks for your continued support of our work at CDSS.
