Meet Gardenia!

Meet six-year-old Gardenia. She was born in Guatemala and was diagnosed with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. She has endured more than a dozen surgeries. She cannot stand without assistance. Gardenia uses a wheelchair for school and a medical stroller for home and going around town. Gardenia is cheerful and upbeat despite her tribulations.


Gardenia has a few interests. She is a huge fan of Disney’s Frozen—Elsa is her favorite character. Her hobbies are coloring and painting-she is always asking for art supplies to create new and beautiful pictures. Gardenia, most importantly, has a great personality. She is friendly and talks to everybody. She is always laughing and smiling. Gardenia lives up to her name. She is as beautiful as a flower and is the awe-inspiring center that people cannot wait to see!


Gardenia needs a medical stroller. Her current stroller is too small and painful. The new equipment will provide better comfort and support. Please be her sponsor!
