Year Three: Go Team Ciara!

This is a special post from our therapist Elizabeth Cortez. Liz is a LMT and has been part of the MaxWell Medical family for years. She is kind and attentive ensuring that each patient she meets is on the road to feeling better, faster. There is no surprise why she is a favorite among patients and peers. She has been a strong supporter of NDSS and we admire her perseverance. To find out more about the organization, visit

“NDSS, the Buddy Walk and the awareness it promotes has become increasingly more significant each passing year. We are proud parents of our daughter, Ciara!”- Liz

Here is Ciara’s message:

“WOW! Oh how time flies! This will be our 3rd year participating in the Buddy Walk & every year I look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.Thank you for year-round support. The support has made more and more advances each year for people like me with Down Syndrome. We are accepted with open hearts and best of all, we are free to give and grow without societal limitations. By walking with me or making a donation, you are supporting the Buddy Walk and people, like myself to help promote acceptance and honor those with special needs. Thank you for your continued friendship and support!”
