Kara Weitzel was born with Down syndrome. Down syndrome is a genetic condition that occurs when an individual has an extra copy of chromosome 21, also known as Trisomy 21. The DNA material in the extra chromosome causes a variety of health and developmental issues. Each individual with Down syndrome is affected differently, depending on how that extra chromosome affects him/her. For Kara, her biggest challenges are sensory related where certain accommodations are needed for her to do things that most people take for granted.
Kara and her family had a wonderful time together at Disney World! Kara enjoyed meeting all the princesses.
