Prader-Willi Syndrome Research Fund

Give Now to This Fund

September 16, 2016 my daughter, Everly Grace, was born. Within an hour of her being born, we noticed something was wrong. Everly had low muscle tone, had no desire to eat, and was very sleepy. After 3 weeks, we got the diagnosis of Prader Willi Syndrome (PWS). There are several medical issues that go along with PWS, but the hallmark sign is the constant feeling of hunger despite already eating. Everly is in the beginning stages of PWS and does not present with hunger issues. Instead, it is the opposite, she does not have the desire to eat but eventually the brain just does not register being full which could lead to obesity issues. I had to find Everly the best possible care and then I found Dr. Miller. She is an endocrinologist that specializes in PWS and I have never met a doctor as passionate and caring as her. She gave us the hope we needed. Everly is currently doing AMAZING! She’s eating more and her strength has improved tremendously. I am so proud of how hard she works everyday and I know that in the long run she will do amazing things and live a normal life like her sister. Everly’s first birthday is coming up and I want to raise awareness about this rare genetic disorder and raise research money for Dr. Miller so that she can continue to improve the lives of the PWS community which is the best gift we can give Everly.
