Support Isabella's Voice









Hello, Isabella is unable to speak , use her hands, has trouble walking and horrible seizures. We are raising donations for our daughter Isabella who has RETT Syndrome .  Please Help us get Isabella mobile and communicating . www.rettsyndrome.org
 Our Story: This all began when we were unable to have children due to Isabella's mom having Ovarian Cancer and needing a hysterectomy. We immediately began the process to find and to adopt a child once she fully recovered from surgery and chemotherapy. We adopted Isabella from Guatemala and brought her home in early 2007 only 10 months old. We did not know she had a syndrome only that she was born prematurely. RETT syndrome doesn't begin with onset of symptoms until around 18 months of age. Which is when she started losing many of her milestones of growth. Isabella currently cannot speak, she is unable to use her hands, fine and minimal gross motor. Difficulty with walking and balance. She has seizures almost every day.......there are many other debilitating symptoms , However we try to be positive and enjoy the simple things Isabella can do. She can make you smile with her belly laughs, she has beautiful eyes and loves anyone that pays a little attention to her. She also loves Dora and Mickey Mouse.  We are lucky to have the emotional support system in place to help us. I currently work as an RN, over my career helping people I have needed surgery on both my neck and low back. This is also an important factor why we need to minimize lifting her. Isabella's mom is lucky to be employed (part time as a pre school teacher) by a friend that lets her come and go as necessary. As you can imagine Isabella has many hours weekly of Doctor visits and Therapy . As she grows it's getting very difficult to get her in and out of vehicles. That is why we want to purchase her a van where we can keep her in the wheelchair and not need to transfer her in and out of the vehicle. In addition, we want to buy a device called MY TOBII which could help her communicate with us and others. We have never asked for help from anyone financially before so this is difficult. Having a child with special needs can become extremely costly. We will always try to give our daughter the best life possible. We would be very grateful for any help given to our beautiful little angel.  Thank you ,
