Marla Murasko

Patient Leader

I am a Past WEGO Health "Advocating for Another" Award-Winner, Down Syndrome Advocate, Speaker, Talk Show Co-Host, Author, Community Builder but my “real” job is Mom! The one I am MOST proud of! I am passionate about educating society on the acceptance and inclusion for individuals with Down Syndrome. So people see their “capabilities“, not their disabilities. I have collaborated with a fellow parent of a child with Down Syndrome and created a Facebook Live Talk Show called "Down Right Capable". Our show focuses on helping to change the way others view Down Syndrome, by highlighting the capabilities rather than the disabilities of individuals with Down Syndrome.
