Staff Writer

In January 2013, DeeAnn Helton discovered she was pregnant with her first child at the age of 43. Due to her age, it was agreed she would see a high risk physician “just in
case.” A blood test was administered that indicated the possibility her child would be born with Down Syndrome.

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and Helton is sharing something very special to raise awareness and acceptance of those who live with the genetic condition, as well as raise funds for the Down Syndrome Association of Central Oklahoma.
