Dr Taylor says her work has helped people who were born with genetic disorders and other medical conditions.”
People with Down syndrome are a bit of a rarity and I think that is because they have such a hard time in their lives,” she explained.”
For example, they may have a disease that’s really hard to get over and they might not even know what it is.
“There’s a lot of challenges that they have, but they’re also able to be incredibly smart and I know that makes them incredibly special.”
That’s why it’s really important to me to see that they get a fair chance in life.”‘
You can’t really imagine what it would be like to have a baby without this gene’Dr Taylor said she had a number of patients come to her for advice on their genetic diseases.”
It’s a bit like when you have a child with a rare condition that you can’t imagine what life would be, what your life would look like without it,” she told ABC News.”
But you can imagine what that would be for them, how they’d be able, what they would be able look like, how their hair would look, their skin and their face and their body.
