Helen is a beautiful 6 year old girl who is a little quiet and shy. She doesn't smile easily, but when she does it lights up the room!

Helen has Beta Thalassemia and receives blood transfusions about once a month. She seemed to lack energy when we met her, it may have been nearly time for another transfusion.

She made a necklace by stringing beads, jumped, stood on one foot, and went up and down steps for us. She copied shapes, followed directions, and spoke clearly in complete sentences. 

Helen is a sweet, quiet little girl who needs a family to rush to her to bring her home so that she can get the medical care she needs!

Could Helen be your daughter? Please contact April Uduhiri at april.uduhiri@gladney.org for more information.
