Nothing Down is so proud to present our latest documentary short, “Dear Doctor.” We often hear of the heartbreaking ways in which many families receive their child’s Down syndrome diagnosis. It is our goal to change the narrative and to work with the medical community to ensure that EVERY parent is delivered their child’s Down syndrome diagnosis with compassion, up-to-date education, proper resources, and hope. We believe that this film has the strong potential to ignite a much needed change for future parents.
