Sara was diagnosed at 8 months with CP global developmental delay, optic nerve athrophy (blind), seizures disorder, hypotonya and central hypertonia in 2017. Sara was later diagnosed with Leukodystrophy at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Leukodystrophies are a group of rare progressive metabolic-genetic diseases that affect the brain, spinal cord and the peripheral nerves. There’s no cure for Leukodystrophies.
Sara also has an Xq 28 chromosomal duplication and a very rare Camsap2 Gene in Chromosome 1 (only one known to date in the world). She is a fighter and she’s the strongest little girl I know! She loves to laugh and being nonverbal, music is her whole life! Thanks to the iKare4Kids tablet donation we can now bring that music with us wherever we go, especially during our frequent hospital visits and treatment.
