Olivia and Gavin are 2-year-old twins who were born with birth injuries. Olivia was born with global delays and is currently in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy twice a week. She just received a walker to help her learn how to walk. Gavin has autism and is also in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy.
Olivia and Gavin’s parents are doing the best they can to keep up with all of their therapies but still need our help. They reached out to MPFC to pay for their Pediatric Neurologist visits and Theratog/Spio Suits that will help engage their core and build muscle strength. We look forward to helping Olivia and Gavin as they grow and progress through their therapy.
MPFIC recently awarded a grant for Olivia’s genetic testing that her health insurance denied. Olivia’s genetic testing results came back with a slight variance or mutation the MAGEL-2 gene. It is a very rare condition. It is called Schaff-Yang that affects many parts of the body. Some of the symptoms include low muscle tone, feeding difficulties, developmental delay, intellectual disability, and ASD.
