This is Lilla.
She is 13. She is like the sun and fills everything she's around with light and warmth. She is effervescent and gracious and resilient. She laughs, dances, spins around and hugs virtually everyone in her path. Sound amazing? She is.
An eight-grader at West Ridge Middle School, she thinks about becoming a vet (which her dog, bird and eight chickens endorse) or a photographer. She loves playing the oboe. She has the same friends she made in kindergarten but has picked up several more along the way. She adores the beach and is an excellent swimmer.
Please help fund a cure for her with a generous donation. I don't know what she'll eventually do with her life - but I can tell you our world needs it.
