ARGOS â€” 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 hadnâ€™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 Chazâ€™s spine was extremely loose.
PLYMOUTH â€” Wednesday was a day of â€śfirstsâ€ť for Patt Houghton. Unbeknownst to her, Houghtonâ€™s sister-in-law Donna Kelly had nominated her for a Hello Gorgeous makeover at C.C. Hair Co. in Plymouth. Houghton was treated to her first pedicure, first facial and first hair coloring treatment as part of the makeover â€” all of which was a complete surprise to her.
â€ś(Houghton) has always given of herself, and I thought it was her turn to be pampered,â€ť said Kelly, watching with misty eyes as Houghton picked out a sparkly pink nail polish for her toes.
