THE STORY:

My sister was born with Sturge-Weber syndrome. It is a rare disorder that is present at birth. A child with this condition will have a port-wine stain birthmark (usually on the face) and nervous system problems.

Due to sturge-weber syndrome my sister dealt with:
-Port-wine stain on her face
-Seizures
-Paralysis and weakness on one side of her body
-Learning disabilities
-glaucoma
-and growth problems

Despite all her complications/disabilities, my sister never even seemed to notice and lived life to the fullest. Sadly, in July of 1996 my sister at the age of 11 passed away from a seizure. Please donate whatever you can. I have listed two links below that educate you on what Sturge-Weber Syndrome is.

Any donation is very appreciated! I promise to give it my all in New York!
