Meet seven-year-old Silvia. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and seizure disorder. She is cognitively impaired and nonverbal. She cannot walk. Silvia, despite these trials, is a cheerful girl.
Silvia has a small array of interests. She listens to 70’s and 80‘s music, and her favorite artist is Michael Jackson. She loves going to school and hearing kids playing. Most of all activities, Silvia always wants to cuddle! Silvia has a sweet personality, too. She has a smirking smile that makes her positively adorable. She has a quirky laugh to end all laughs. She is strong-willed and fights to achieve her goals. Silvia’s greatest achievement is being joyful in the face of hardships. She sets an example of never giving up. Silvia inspires everybody she meets.
Silvia needed an adaptive tricycle to encourage her to grasp objects with her hands. She will also have fun riding the trike. With the help of a Grant from Mabel & Elsworth we were able to help obtain a trike for Silvia!
