Derrick and Julie Tennant The Love Chromosome

Meet Derrick 

A gifted athlete and was progressing in his dream for a career in sports when one evening he laid down but did not wake up for three days. He had undergone what doctors would later term random bleeding from point x for an unknown reason. Paralyzed and in a coma, Derrick underwent brain surgery which left him paralyzed on the left side of his body. Today, Derrick is a stand up comedian and although he is unable to use his left arm and walks with a limp, he still 'loves his life!'

Meet Julie

Julie is Derrick's sister. She was born with an extra chromosome meaning she has Down Syndrome. Her Grandfather always told her she was special because she had this extra chromosome, which he called 'the love chromosome'. Julie's 'Love Chromosome' is something she would like to share. "I wish everybody could have one", she says. As you get to know her, you will see countless ways this love chromosome affects those around her!

Together, Derrick and Julie, are The LOVE CHROMOSOME!

Event Reviews

"Derrick and Julie were a treat! Derrick made everyone laugh and also provoked thought and inspired people to give. Julie was an added bonus and everyone loved her. My favorite part was that they came a few days early and got to know us and our center. Derrick personalized his presentation for us and the feedback from our guests was excellent!"
