Sara is Mikayla’s “Voice”

Sara is Mikayla’s “Voice”

Posted January 21, 2018 | General

On Friday, Sara joined Mikayla back at Central Elementary where they shared their stories with the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. Diagnosed with a mitochondrial disorder as an infant, Sara and her family were told she would always be dependent upon her wheelchair. When her health took a turn for the worst two years ago, a new doctor recognized that she had been originally been misdiagnosed and identified the reason for her disability as Segawa Syndrome. Only the 31st person in the world with Segawa (which prevents her body from producing dopamine), the incredible news was that she could make a full recovery. Since then Sara has worked tirelessly to be able to get out of her wheelchair, and on Friday she shared her story and walked in front of a thrilled audience at Central Elementary School.  Sara shared how she is regarded differently in a wheelchair and how important it is to treat everyone the same. Sara is an amazing young woman and we are blessed when she joins us to serve as Mikayla’s “Voice.”
