Layla turns 6 in 2018 and suffered damage to her spinal cord at the T11-L1 (paraplegic) level at just 7 weeks old. Her family enrolled her in activity based therapy where she has progressed in leaps and bounds and has been able to stand with assistance and continues to focus on using her legs. Her smiles light up the gym and she is like a social butterfly with other injured she meets.
She loves adaptive ballet and participated in her town's rendition of the Nutcracker last year. She enjoys performing and doesn't let her wheelchair slow her down or keep her from enjoying her favorite activities.
Because her family lives over 100 miles from her therapy center, she is only able to go a few times a week and funding is difficult for her parents since they are a one income family.
How can you help?
Donations for her activity based therapy, dance lessons, fuel cards for her travel and any type of gift cards that help with medical supplies, equipment, school supplies and clothing are all appreciated!
You can make a difference!
