(2.9.09) Zeb has Down's Syndrome, which will have a life-long impact on him and his family. He struggles with weight gain and has to have physical therapy. He has had two surgeries already and will need at least one more. But his mom says he puts so many smiles on peoples' faces! He loves chasing around after his big brother, Leo. He doesn't walk yet, but he loves to dance to music in his own special way. His favorite toy is a drum. He loves music and loves to "talk". He and his parents live many miles from the closest medical services. The dad is self-employed in construction and does not have medical insurance. The surgeries and costs incurred from travel from their home have been hard on this family, so any financial assistance would be used for that. His current physical need is a bed.
