In reply to: . 's message, "Chrs Burke is 52, he has Downs Syndrome & starred in the 80's show "Life Goes On"" on Wednesday, January 03, 11:31:02am

I only ask because, sadly, even though many with Down's are doing very well in combating old stereotypes regarding their intellectual abilities, now that their lifespan has increased to past 50, after that point most develop Alzheimer's-like symptoms which eventually take their toll. I've worked with many and unfortunately I only know of one who made it to 70.
