Man With Down Syndrome Gives Powerful Testimony: 'My Life Is Worth Living'
November 6, 2017
If Frank Stephens had butterflies from speaking to the U.S. Congress, it didn't show. Stephens, who has Down syndrome, is an advocate for people with the condition. As a representative of the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, he was asking Congress for increased funding for medical research. "Whatever else you learn today, remember I am a man with Down syndrome and my life is worth living," he told lawmakers. Stephens later told InsideEdition.com, "I'm not usually nervous, but I was that day."
