Little Bella’s Story

Bella woke up on September 22, 2013 and wasn't able to walk. We took her to the emergency room and no tests were run. I followed up with her pediatric doctor the very next day and that’s when she was diagnosed with transverse myelitis.  The same night we went to UVA hospital for 10 days where she began steroids and IVIg.  She then went to Kennedy Krieger in Baltimore for 6 weeks for intensive therapy. She came home on October 18.  Bella has outpatient therapy 3 days a week and mommy does therapy at home.
Bella is 3 years old.  Her birthday is Sept 29. She is an amazing little girl who never gives up. She has come so far. You can tell by her big smile and attitude that she is a fighter.
