Meet Deonc!

Deonc was born with Jarcho-Levin Syndrome, a rare genetic condition that comes with a grim diagnosis. Children like Deonc, who has the most severe form of the condition, rarely live past 2 years of age because of their lungs and rib cage are too small to support a growing body. So it brings us great joy to wish her a Happy 12th Birthday! Her favorite things include dancing, glitter (specifically glittery shoes), and unicorns.
