Melanie is a copywriter and Mom living in Toronto. When she learned her second child was born with Williams Syndrome, she made a commitment to advocate for her daughter and all individuals living with WS to ensure they have the chance to live their best lives. When she has the time, she blogs at mommydo.ca. Auctionforalma.com is an online silent auction supporting all families with Williams Syndrome in Canada. Melanie has a two-year goal of raising $40,000 to support an International gathering of WS researchers in Toronto (a first in Canada) as part of the 2017 National Williams Syndrome Convention.
