Adelyn " Resilient Spirit"
“At 7 years old, Adelyn was a normally happy, spunky and very active little girl. All of the sudden, she was complaining about most physical activity and was tired all the time. Between 2013-2017, Adelyn ended up in and out of casts and splints with a combination of 14 fractures and bone contusions.
She was devastated after each broken bone and I always worried if this ‘one more thing’ would break her spirit. She never let a cast slow her down. It was as if it became her new normal.
Adelyn is now 12 and still, one of the many struggles with Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) is that it’s so rare and still not widely understood. For the most part though, Adelyn is a normal kid and you’d never know the struggles she’s faced.”
