Great Expectations

Great Expectations stars Chris Burke, the first actor with Down syndrome to be featured in a broadcast television series. Chris shares his life experience with us as he went from his role as TV star "Corky" on Life Goes On to that of NDSS Goodwill Ambassador. Chris has dined with US Presidents and given parents around the world hope that their child might have a brighter future. He broke barriers for people with Down syndrome and is a hero to the community.
