For the 6th year in a row, Steiner employees are helping bring awareness to Phelan-McDermid Syndrome by wearing their Phelan-Lucky shirts.
On June 10, 2016, Krystle Howell (CSR) delivered a beautiful boy. Dominik Brady Howell was born nearly a month early and weighed only 5 lbs 10 ounces. Immediately after delivery the doctors and nurses saw a red flag, Dominik’s arms and legs were very thin and had low muscle tone. They ran genetic testing and 3 weeks later the results came back that Dominik had Phelan-McDermid Syndrome.
Krystle passed in May of 2021 after her battle with cancer. Her friends at Steiner miss her presence daily and are continuing to bring awareness to support Dominik.
