Meet Lexa

Lexa MacMartin was born with Trisomy 21(Down Syndrome). With this diagnosis has come many trials over the years. Lexa has had two open heart surgeries both with difficult recoveries. She has Global Developmental delay and receives support for most day-to-day activities. Through all of this we have been helped by the wonderful people at Lansdowne Children's Centre.  
 
From only a few weeks old, they provided occupational therapists to help her eat and drink safely, and physical therapists to help her strengthen her low muscle tone.  Throughout the years they have done so much more including now speech therapy, and even collaborating with her school to recommend special equipment to help Alexa have an excellent and accommodating school experience.  
 
As parents, we also have benefited from the resources at Lansdowne, including the Family Support Network. This has help tremendously with finding similar families and to connect with the community at Lansdowne. 
 
We are thrilled to be part of the 20th Motorcycle Ride and to help support Lansdowne which has been an integral part of our journey. We know how vital the support of a place like Lansdowne Children's Centre is to families just like ours.  - MacMartin Family
