Joan nominated her daughter, Ashley. Ashley is 15 years old.
Joan writes: “Ashley is a 15-year-old girl with Down syndrome Ashley had heart surgery at 6 months of age. She had a stoke when she was having her heart surgery. So she doesn’t walk well and her right arm is only a helper hand. It’s very hard to find clothing she can put on or take off by herself And what I do find doesn’t fit her well and I try and fix them to make them look as beautiful as she is”.
How would a pair of our jeans make a difference in her life? “Ashley would have a pair of Jean that was made just for her. She doesn’t have to depend on anyone help her us the bathroom. She will be able to pull down her own pants”.
