Announcing The Winner of Our Sweet Dreams Sweepstakes: Katie Supina and her son, Ryan, from Minnesota
Pittsburgh, PA, August 1, 2015
Ryan was diagnosed with Dup15q syndrome when he was 8 months old. The syndrome occurs when a region of the 15th chromosome duplicates early in development, and can cause a host of medical, developmental, and cognitive issues. Find out more about this syndrome at http://www.dup15q.org/
Ryan is now 6 years old. His Dup15q syndrome has manifested as autism, cognitive delays, sensory processing disorder, vision delays, no verbal communication, and other issues. His conditions increase the likelihood of dangerous night-time wandering, and a Safety Sleeper will help to keep him securely in his own bed. He loves his older twin sisters, and is an incredibly sweet boy with a big heart for everyone around him.
We’re proud to give Ryan a free Safety Sleeper bed. We hope it leads to a good, safe night’s sleep for him and his entire family!
