LITTLE FALLS, NJ - For the second year in a row, employees of the Little Falls Public School District dressed down in March to support "Phelan Lucky," a campaign that supports research and awareness for Phelan-McDermid Syndrome, a rare genetic condition.

Thee staff members in all three Little Falls schools joined together to wear special t-shirts to support the cause. District special education teacher Meagan Popa has a nephew who is affected by the condition.

The Phelan-McDermid Syndrome Foundation is a non-profit group that offers support for families who are affected by 22q13 Deletion Syndrome/Phelan-McDermid Syndrome. The syndrome, which affects families worldwide, is a rare genetic occurrence and is the result of a damaged or missing protein on the 22nd chromosome.
