Gianna’s Story December 6, 2022 5:56 PM

Gianna is three years old and was born with FOXG1 Syndrome, a neurological condition caused by an extremely rare genetic mutation. FOXG1 has impaired Gianna’s ability to perform functions such as crawling and walking. Her brain has trouble telling her muscles what to do. Therapy has helped with upper body functions such as clapping. With an adaptive bike, Gianna will be able to exercise her leg muscles, developing muscle memory that will one day enable her to walk! We are so excited for Gianna!
