Wendy's Ups and Downs

If somebody gave me a magic wand and said I could take your son's Down's Syndrome away I would honestly say no, because why would I want that?

– WENDY O’CARROLL

Wendy O'Carroll is the founder of charity Ups and Downs and mother to son Oliver who has Down's Syndrome.

Despite receiving a bleak prognosis from many medical professionals in the early months and years of his life, Wendy was determined Oliver would be “the most amazing person with Down’s syndrome the world has ever seen”. The accomplished teen now enjoys a range of sports, studies at mainstream college and, a couple of years ago, delivered an emotional and word-perfect speech at his mum’s wedding.

Wendy popped by today to shed light on the positive side of having a child with Down’s syndrome and give a wider insight into what parents go through.

Linda Gray

From being part of American TV royalty to her debut in British panto, we had a good old chin-wag with Linda on today's show! Her portrayal as Sue Ellen Ewing on Dallas is what brought her global fame in the 80's, and 38 years later she still gets excited about playing the Texan diva..

And because we love a laugh here on Loose Women, here's our Coleen doing her best Sue-Ellen impression - enjoy!

Down's Syndrome - raising positive awareness

Wendy and Oliver

Wendy O’Carroll is mum to 18-year-old Oliver, who has Down’s syndrome. She got in touch with us after hearing our interview with Gill Relf on the 12th November. Gill wished she had aborted her 47-year-old son, who has Down’s syndrome, confessing: “I know our lives would have been happier and far less complicated if he had never been born.” Gill’s comments prompted a big response on our social media sites, and many of you asked us to redress the balance and show the positive side of having a child with Down’s syndrome - Wendy is here today to do just that!

Wendy's son Oliver enjoys an active life and studies at mainstream college. As the founder of Down’s syndrome support group Ups and Downs Wendy is able to give a wider insight into what parents go through, as well as recounting her own experience of helping a child with Down's Syndrome.
