Junior Gamboa is a 7 year old with Down syndrome, but that is not all he is. He is a son, a brother, a student, a friend and a joyful, vibrant patient at the Permian Basin Rehab Center. A diagnosis like Down syndrome can leave families feeling lost and hopeless. At 16 months of age, Junior and his family came to the Rehab Center in search of help and hope. Junior needed help learning to crawl, walk, use his hands and speak. Six years later, Junior continues to receive speech therapy services to develop his communication skills. He is walking, running, going to school and talking more and more. His family and therapists are so proud of all the progress Junior has made.
The progress Junior has made is because of the support the Rehab Center receives from donors like you.
