Meet seven-year-old Dior. She was diagnosed with Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS), a disorder in which the immune system attacks the peripheral nerves. Dior was a completely healthy girl up until 2016. She collapsed, and doctors discovered she had walking pneumonia. She was then diagnosed with the rare GBS illness. She now has left-sided paralysis and walking is impossible. She also has a tracheotomy to help her breathe. The change this little girl experienced has not altered her personality.
Dior is described as being very bubbly and fun loving. She enjoys hanging out with her friends. Their favorite thing is to make slime and laugh at the gooey good time. Dior also likes visiting theme parks, especially Busch Gardens. Dior’s passion, however, is rap music. She sings along with her favorite artists, like Beyonce. More importantly, Dior writes her own rap music. Don’t be surprised if Dior raps her way into the spotlight, and into your heart.
Dior received 2 ramps that give her the ability to enter her house independently! These ramps provide safety for Dior while she enters or exits her home. Having the opportunity to be independent is a huge benefit for Dior, as she can wheel herself on her power wheelchair without needing to wait for mom or other family members for help.
Having independence is key to improving her quality of life, and we are so happy to help!
