Abbie Grace's More Than Dance Fund

It Is So Much More Than Dance

Many young girls dream of being a Prima Ballerina or a life on a big stage under the bright lights. Abbie Grace is exceedingly happy just to be able to make it to her dance classes each week. She loves learning to dance, it is her dream, and she is thrilled to be able to be with her friends in class. Although you would never know it from looking at her, Abbie Grace bravely lives with a number of rare medical conditions that have caused her to be hospitalized over 100 times in her short 9 years of life. Her bright eyes, beautiful smiling face and her always-happy demeanor would never give you a clue that she is really quite a sick little girl. However, Abbie Grace doesn't see it that way; she considers herself normal - just a little different. She works hard to be one of the other kids at school and at her Performing Arts Academy; she continues to smile and never complains, although she dances with three different tubes and a medical port in her tiny frame.  

As Abbie Grace's Mom said, "being a part of the program at MJPAA is so much more than dance." While every young performer has to work hard to be part of the team, Abbie Grace has to go beyond by spending time in hospitals, at doctors, and under a strict regimen of medications and treatments. All of it, so that she can function like the other kids. She has proven to be a true inspiration to her Teammates, the Faculty, and the extended MJPAA Family. Her valiant attitude and spirit have led the Administration to include a scholarship fund and medical fundraiser in Abbie Grace's name.  We hope you give what you can to contribute to the fund, and help Abbie Grace continue to live out her dream.
