Isabella Grace was diagnosed just a few months after birth with Cerebral Palsy. She later was also diagnosed with Autism. Isabella never hit any of her milestones but she surprisingly walked when she was 2 years of age, although weaker on the left side of her body and crossed eyed on that side also. She now wears glasses that helps to correct her vision and crossed eye and over the past 6 years now has blessed us both so much with love and precious moments and memories. She is nonverbal but loves to hum to music. She has sensory issues to touch, noise, different sounds, crowds of people and sometimes flashing lights. She is allergic to dairy and has inflammatory problems with gut and colon. She also has trouble swallowing textured foods.
We later took her to a feeding clinic that has a program which teaches kids to swallow and become familiar with textures of varies foods. She has done very well this past year. She is now eating textured food of some sort but has ways to go. She is learning to self-feed with her favorite foods like oatmeal and nondairy yogurts. She does not use her thumb and index finger when trying to grasp an object and she isn't potty trained still as of yet.
The expenses are overwhelming us alone from the feeding program. She hasn't had any Behavioral, Speech or Occupational therapies since turning three years old apart from what she may get in school. We want to get her back on track and keep improving but haven't caught up on the medical expenses that are driving us in debt. Insurance doesn't seem to take the cake just the icing of the bill and the weight of the expenses are left on us. So we can't start her on any other needed therapies for possible improvement that would have a great effect on her and benefit her needs.
We are humble and in need and ask for any help and generosity in donations in any way and thank each person in advance for anything that they can do. Thank you again for the opportunity and taking the time to read her story.
