For more than 75 years, Easter Seals Southeast WI has been offering help and hope to children and adults living with disabilities, and to the families who love them. Through therapy, training, education and support services, Easter Seals creates life-changing solutions so that people with disabilities can live, learn, work and play.
We all have moments, when life throws us curveballs and the obstacles in our way never seem to end. Be inspired by a little girl named Ella who has faced numerous health obstacles in the past three years, but has those and other hurdles to successfully develop into a happy typical little girl.
During an ultrasound in her mom, Melissa’s, third trimester, doctors discovered that her unborn baby girl had a bowel obstruction. Trying all they could to extend delivery to full term, Ella was still born prematurely at 29 weeks on January 11, 2008, weighing only 3lbs, 5 oz and 15” long.
