The Rosewood Foundation
The Rosewood Foundation, formerly Fire Foundation of Greater Chicago, is an organization that focuses on creating a collaborative environment for children of all ages and abilities so they can share the same learning experience as students without disabilities. The importance of this inclusive approach is to allow children, like our Griffin, the opportunity to learn in the same school and classrooms as their friends and peers.
Please consider showing your support by donating to Rosewood Foundation. Help give other children the same life-changing opportunity as our son, Griffin.
Please mention Royal American's name with your donation so we can match your contribution!
World Down Syndrome Day
With Us Not For Us
World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD), 21 March, is a global awareness day that has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.
The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
