Williams Syndrome Woman Hosts Awareness Day

Full Story here:

"A WOMAN with a rare genetic condition hosted an awareness day in Crewkerne on Saturday in a bid to tackle prejudice.

Debbie Jackson, aged 29, wanted to make the community aware that Williams syndrome is a disability, as opposed to a disease, to overcome prejudice. This can stem from people's reaction to her physical characteristics. These include walking and talking slower than most people."
