Seven year old Nevaeh loves Elsa from the Disney movie Frozen and is quite the little “Diva Princess” herself. She likes anything that is pink and sparkles. She also likes animals, especially cats and dogs, being outside, and talking with her friends. She won her first Special Olympic medal last year for bowling a strike in her wheelchair. Nevaeh has defied the odds that previous doctors laid out for her. She has shown great strength and courage at such a young age.
Nevaeh is missing her sacrum. She is also missing her hip joints, femur bones, and knee joints on both sides. On her right side she has a tibia and fibia with a deformity of the foot and heel cord tightness. On her left side she has only a thin bone where her club foot was amputated. She has nerve damage from Caudal Regression Syndrome as well. She has also been diagnosed with Proximal Focal Deficiency bilaterally.
Nevaeh is getting fitted for a new, bigger wheelchair that is not going to fit into the trunk of her mom’s current car and the current vehicle breaks down a lot. She needs a minivan that can at least hold the new chair.
