Michelle's Story

Thanks for visiting my page! Please help me with my fundraising by contributing to this great cause – to find a cure for MPS! It will be a great day when future generations do not have to live with the devastating affects of MPS.

Michelle is 13 years old and she is diligently learning to walk again after spinal decompression surgery in December 2014. Michelle lives with the challenges and pain of MPS 1 every day, but her amazing spirit and positive attitude serve as an inspiration to all who know her!  Just check her out her speech on determination and perseverance on UTube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqkmDaOXaaQ&t=62s
