Love for Antonella

Antonella Marie Cordova’s life has changed drastically in the past few months!  She can no longer do all the things she loves as an active 15 year old who was born on May 6, 2003 to Pablo and Marie Annese Cordova.  Antonella hasn’t been feeling well for a long time and, unfortunately, it has taken doctors a year to diagnosis her serious, debilitating symptoms.  On July 17, 2018, Antonella was finally diagnosed with a very rare illness called Degos Disease.  Tragically, this disease has paralyzed Antonella from the chest down.  She is currently undergoing treatment in Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston with very little success.

Her parents have recently sold their home in Pembroke Pines, Florida and moved their family to Houston so they can all be together.  Antonella has two younger siblings -- her brother Francesco who is 13 and a sister, Vera, who is 8.  Antonella’s parents are very proud of their sweet, virtuous, and generous daughter who is bravely fighting this terrible disease.  She was on the Honor roll in 9th grade and loves to ride horses and play tennis.  Please help Antonella’s family as they manage the medical and relocation costs.  All their love and energy are going into helping their beautiful daughter.  They believe in God and pray for Antonella to be healed.  Thank you for your love, support and prayers!
