Bossier City Mayor to Proclaim Lexi Rene Gordon Day in Honor of Girl With Tay Sachs Disease

lexi gordon

Bossier City Mayor Lorenz Walker will present a proclamation today, November 21st, in honor of a two-year-old Keithville girl stricken with a rare and deadly disease for which there is no cure.

Mayor Walker will make the presentation to designate March 30th, 2014 as “Lexi Rene Gordon Day” in Bossier City. March 30th is Lexi’s birthday. Lexi was diagnosed at 14 months old with Tay Sachs Disease, a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder that causes progressive deterioration of nerve cells and of mental and physical abilities. The proclamation will not only honor Lexi, but is also intended to help bring attention to Tay Sachs and the need to find a cure.

The presentation will take place at 9 a.m. Thursday in the Bossier City Council chambers, 620 Benton Road.

Mayor Walker is issuing the proclamation at the request of Pay It Forward Networking, an organization of local volunteers that helps and supports children fighting illness. Lexi and her family, along with a group of supporters including Bossier City firefighters, will be in attendance for the presentation.
