Annabelle

Annabelle may only be two years old, but she has conquered more in her short life than many do in a lifetime! She was born with Trisomy 21 and Unilateral Left Clubfoot. She did not let the weekly trips out of state to get new leg casts hold her back and even began rolling over at just a month old! Every single milestone that doctors predicted she wouldn’t be able to accomplish for months (or even years!) she was able to accomplish in weeks. At 12 months old, Annabelle was named Zulily Cutie 2017 and was flown to Seattle for several photo shoots with her family. Appearing on their social media pages and on their website, Annabelle was well on her way to changing the way the world views Down syndrome. Just weeks after the cross-country trip, Annabelle was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She spent many months in the hospital, but thankfully achieved remission in September of 2017. With only a few months of treatment left now, Annabelle is rocking the world once again. She became an ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network in 2018 and is so excited that she’s been given the opportunity to represent Nothing Down as a 2019 ambassador! Even with all of these complex issues, as well as being profoundly deaf in one ear, Annabelle has already shown the world that there’s absolutely Nothing Down about Down syndrome!
