Dr. Jerome LeJeune Society

.. a group for Catholic parents of children with Down syndrome.

"The goals of the group are:

1. To provide support for parents of children with Down syndrome with the help of their Catholic faith, including a beautiful prayer which Dr Lejeune's daughter, Anouk Lejeune Meyer will send us.
2. To raise society's awareness of what beautiful children they are to lower the 90% abortion rate
3. To raise funds to support ongoing research to treat and to cure Down syndrome, like Fondacion Lejeune
4. To support Dr. Lejeune's cause for sainthood, by raising awareness of his contributions to the science of genetics, to the pro-life movement, and to raising the dignity of individuals with Down syndrome." via their site

Thank you, Ruth for helping to promote the Dr. Jerome Lejeune Society.
I have a friend meeting with his daughter Anouk Lejeune Meyer in the next month in Paris,to interview her for an article we are writing for "Celebrate Life" magazine on how his legacy is being carried out.
She sent holy cards with a prayer for her father's intercession for all the members of the Society.
