Dan and Joel Hill Case Study 2

Posted 8/3/2022

Dan Hill is a young man that has a condition called Angelman’s Syndrome.

According to the Angelman’s Syndrome Foundation, “angelman syndrome (AS) is a rare neuro-genetic disorder that occurs in one in 15,000 live births or 500,000 people worldwide.

People with AS have developmental problems that become noticeable by the age of 6 – 12 months. Other common signs and symptoms usually appear in early childhood like walking and balance disorders, gastrointestinal issues, seizures, and little to no speech. Despite these symptoms, people with Angelman syndrome have an overall happy and excitable demeanour. An individual with AS will light up a room with their smile and laughter.” 

‘It was a lovely gesture from MMP to present Dan and Joel with a gift each - it means a lot when siblings of special needs children are included. Due to Dan’s disability of Angelman syndrome he absolutely loved the mascots and put a smile on his face’. This quote is from Dan and Joel's mom, Jane Walker

As Daniel is well known in the community for his infectious smile, we presented him and brother Joel with some gifts. As you can see from his reaction, he was very pleased with what we gave him. Since then, Daniel and Joel have become permanent beneficiaries of More Mascots Please CIC and attend many of our events.
