Larisa is 13 months old and has had very hard start to the first year of her life. She was born with a rare disorder where her pituitary gland in her brain doesn't function, therefore she cannot make vital hormones needed to live. Due to complications at 2 days old, she is now blind, can't hear properly, suffers from diabetes insipidus, epilepsy and low motor skills. She can't quite hold her head up by herself. There is no cure or operation to fix this, it will be a constant daily struggle for her and her family. She takes 19 doses of medicine a day, plus an injection to replace the hormones her little body can't make. She has constant visits to many doctors, including MRI'S, EEG'S, blood tests,trial and error meds for her hard to treat epilepsy. Physiotherapy, occupational therapy, tests and more tests. We would like to get Larisa a spa to add hydrotherapy which will help with her motor skills, and help her to learn to walk. She has recently been diagnosed with cerebral palsy/muscular dystrophy. She will need lots of therapy and aides as she grows and will have a lifetime of struggle.
