According to the data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 6,000 children with Down syndrome are born in the US every year. At the same time, the studies in this field are developed rapidly, and now, parents of such babies have access to various therapeutic and educational materials and trainings.
Chip Reece is a social worker from Kansas, who is a fan of comic books. In 2010, his son Ollie was born, but unfortunately, he had certain health problems and had to spend first months of life undergoing heart surgeries. When Chip Reece found out his son has Down syndrome, he started searching for comic book characters that may become an inspiration for his son.
