Treat a person like an individual

Down’s Syndrome, MS, Parkinson’s, Autism, Cancer – these words may tell you what someone is struggling with, but they do not define who they are, any more than a broken leg would. Please do not treat someone with these diseases (or any other) like that is what they are. These things are what they have, NOT what they are. Treat a person like an individual, not like a disease he or she has.
