Chris Burke speaks at 2010 International Siblings Conference...

....about the importance of his siblings including him in everything while growing up.

"When I was born, the doctors told my parents all the things I would never do," Burke said. "They, and my brother and sisters, tried even harder, and they passed that message on to me."

The former Life Goes On actor now sings in a folk band and acts as an ambassador with the National Down Syndrome Society.

The conference was for siblings of people with disabilities to come together to share resources and get support.
