Baylor Trucking Raising Awareness For Rare Disorder With Truck Wrap
By Travis Thayer
(Milan, Ind.) – Baylor Trucking is using its trucks to help raise awareness for a rare disorder that occurs in one in 15,000 live births.
Last week, Baylor Trucking unveiled a new truck complete with a wrap dedicated to the Angelman Syndrome Foundation.
Angelman syndrome (AS) is a rare neuro-genetic disorder that is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or autism due to lack of awareness. Characteristics of AS include developmental delay, lack of speech, seizures and, walking and balance disorders.
Baylor Trucking learned of the disorder while advocating for drivers in Washington, D.C. It was there they found out that House Rep. Todd Rokita’s son is battling AS himself.
Rokita’s wife, Kathy joined visited Baylor Trucking last week for the official ribbon cutting and unveiling of the Angelman truck.
The truck will travel approximately 100,000 miles this year in an effort to help spread the word #WhatIsAngelman.
Baylor Trucking plans to support more charitable causes this year by putting more wraps on 50 new trucks.
