When you meet a person that warms your heart, it makes the day so much better...when that person has struggled through each of her 13 years with no real answers and continuous hurdles, it becomes heartbreaking.
Angel crossed our paths at Xtra Nail Bar when her mom was visiting for a service. She automatically endeared herself to all of us! We could tell that something was affecting her speech but she didn't let that stop her from telling us all about how much she loves school. It was the moment that she said that something was wrong with her brain' that we all stopped briefly.
Her mother enlightened us that she has had a tough start to life. From hearing issues noted almost immediately after birth to tubes in her ears at 3 years old to having to relearn how to speak at 6years old.
She has had a myriad of other physical problem along the way as well, like her body growing faster then her mind, early juvenile puberty, diabetic symptoms and most recently she was diagnosed as having the liver of an alcoholic at the age of 12.
While juggling all the physical issues, she has been struggling with serious learning disabilities that her family has been fighting for years to have addressed. She has been tested for down syndrome, autism and Asperger's syndrome with no answers.
The family has been pushing for genetic testing that is not covered by our health system traditionally. The testing will help expedite eliminating possibilities and in hopes give the answers needed before her liver fails any further.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about Angel (there is SO much more to her than this unfortunate situation) Any help is gratefully appreciated!
