“Our daughter Grace has a form of muscular dystrophy called Friedreich’s Ataxia. As we were searching for a diagnosis, Grace was taking ballet lessons. During a recital, I knew that something was terribly wrong. She just did not move like the other little girls. Grace has lost the ability to dance. She can walk only very short distances with a lot of help. However, she still loves ballet and will watch on her iPad for hours at a time. She has the entire score to ‘The Nutcracker’ on her iTunes. ‘The Nutcracker’ was such a highlight for her! She loved every minute! Thank you for making her world brighter.”
