Chronic pain can be a difficult journey for anyone; let alone a 12 year old girl. This girl, who is so lovely and well-spoken that you may mistake her for someone older, attends a pain clinic and takes several hot showers a day as part of her treatment strategy to try and manage the pain she lives with. She was born with low muscle tone, and had difficulty feeding, developed very slowly; and has had several disorders manifesting since. She also suffers from severe anxiety. She loves to find comfort in reading; particularly history, and enjoys writing poetry and stories. She’s quite socially aware of what’s going on in the world, and we know she’s going to find lots to further her interests and fuel her writing on her wish trip to Washington!
