December 29, 2011

ARGOS — Chaz Downey, 8, of Argos, loves sports. His favorite is basketball, and he can shoot hoops with amazing accuracy for his age, according to his mother Jackie Campbell. Chaz especially likes cheering on his older brother, Chandler, at his basketball and soccer games.
If it hadn’t been for quick action by his doctors two years ago, however, Chaz might not be able to do the things he loves today. During a routine checkup at the Down Syndrome clinic at Riley Hospital in Indianapolis in 2009, his pediatrician, Dr. Maria Stanley, discovered that Chaz’s spine was extremely loose.
