Bella suffers from a very rare genetic disorder called Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2). NF2 causes tumours to grow on the nervous system causing a multitude of medical problems. Recently, Bella had her second acoustic neuroma removed in a 20-hour brain surgery; this left Bella completely deaf. Through an auditory implant, Bella is able to hear some loud sounds but not speech.
Bella loves reading and has a great interest in Greek mythology. Prior to being diagnosed three years ago, Bella was among the top in her class. As a result of her illness, she has had to miss a substantial portion of schooling.
Bella hopes to be a Prep teacher when she grows up. To enable Bella to get back to learning and participating at school she needs a specialised software purchased from America called Interact AS, plus a portable iPad device to run it. At a cost of $3400.00, we are appealing for your donation.
