Vayda is an extremely intelligent 4-year-old with a diagnosis of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, rendering her unable to walk independently due to the inability to maintain balance and coordination as a result of peripheral nerve damage. Vayda does not let her diagnosis get her down, though! She is already reading, and she already has a remarkably advanced vocabulary which, mom states, she quite effectively uses to win arguments with her big sister. Vayda loves everything Frozen, especially the songs!
Vayda’s therapist has requested a manual wheelchair to give Vayda more mobility as she starts preschool this year. Vayda is excited to start school, and this wheelchair will provide her the opportunity to participate safely and will allow for more independence for this extremely bright young lady! Please be her sponsor!
