THE STORY:

My name is Lennah and I just turned four years old. Last time I wrote a letter I was two years old. You may read my first letter at www.LennahLovesLife.com I was trying to help my mommy and daddy reach our goal to raise enough money for me to undergo a procedure, as well as a month of Intensive Physical Therapies, which both had the potential to give me a better quality of life. Let us recap a little, shall we? I was born with Gastroschisis, which means my intestines formed outside of my abdominal wall. After six major surgeries and four months and four days in the Intensive Care Unit, I was sent home to my loving family so we could finally start our life together. Soon after, we found out that I had suffered a stroke during one of those invasive surgeries, which forever changed my life as we all had envisioned it would be. I was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at 6 months old. After hours of research, my parents learned of a potentially life improving, non-invasive blood transfusion using the stem cells from umbilical cord blood. With the generosity of our friends, family, community and complete (yet loved) strangers, we met our goal to raise enough funds for me to have this procedure done. We also were able to spend an entire month at an amazing physical therapy facility called PolFit Wellness in Brea, California that helped to build up my muscles and teach me many things I didn’t know before. In my first letter I said, “I cannot sit, I cannot roll, I cannot walk, I cannot hold things in my hands, I cannot eat, I cannot talk.” Well, after last year’s procedure and therapy I CAN talk! I love to say “hi” to anyone and everyone. I CAN see! I watch my baby sister. Truby, run around all day and my mommy can’t sneak up on me anymore. I am learning to balance so that soon I will be able to sit on my own and I am learning how to take steps because I WANT to WALK and RUN beside my sister! Every day when my daddy gets home from work, I watch as Truby runs to greet him with open arms and then together they come to greet me. During my weekly therapy sessions, I try to keep my goal in mind – I want to run into my daddy’s arms when he gets home from work! I can take reciprocal steps, but that is no longer an accomplishment for me. I NEED to WALK! Will you help me? My parents have put a deposit down of $500 to go back to Polfit Therapy in Brea, California for March 21st-April 15th of 2016. Our insurance doesn't cover it and it costs $8,200 for the four week, five hours a day, five days a week Intensive therapy program. I know my parents are trying to figure out how to pay for my therapy, but perhaps you could help them out a little? Or, as my parents always say, “Please simply share our story… something good will come out of it!” Thank you, Lennah Sofia Martinez
