Helping Ariana with Therapy Expenses

Ariana is a determined, spunky and affectionate 3 year old who was born with a rare condition, she is 1 out of 72 diagnosed in the world with a variant on her GNB1 gene causing a neurodevelopmental disorder. Her complex condition causes poor muscle tone and control, feeding difficulties, speech delays, seizures and learning difficulties. In order for Ariana to master basic skills it requires unique learning strategies and a lot of repetition.  She has been able to overcome many obstacles already with a ton of work and dedication, we couldn’t be prouder of her journey so far. 

Ariana has been presented with a unique opportunity to undergo a therapy plan targeted specifically for children with these struggles. Specialists and centers available for these sorts of therapy plans are hard to find.  We are also very fortunate to have found this opportunity now because she has been seizure free for a few months, she is at a crucial time in her development and she will be unable to participate while in school this fall. 

The purpose of this fundraiser is to contribute to the costs of this intensive therapy plan, special equipment needed and travel expenses. This is a life changing opportunity for Ariana and our family.

Every little bit donated will help Ariana build these fundamental step in her development. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, this means the world to us.
