On June 19th, 1976, at the age of 20, John and Deana were overjoyed to welcome their second child into the world.
Three days later they received news that would change their lives forever. Their beautiful, baby boy which they named Aaron, was diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome.
The pediatrician was not only days late with his diagnosis, he also labeled Aaron as a “mongoloid”.
Over the next six years, three more brothers were born to the Trivisonno family, one of them was me.
Down’s Syndrome is a condition that’s difficult to understand and accept. Many families simply don’t know how to cope with a “Down’s” child which is why V’Sonno Salon & Spa donates 1% of our monthly sales to support the Up Side of Downs – a local organization that is committed to educating families who are touched by downs as well as to aid children and adults with downs with extra assistance.
Please take a moment to visit their site and learn more about what this great organization is doing for the community.
