My Message

Robby was diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome on December 29, 2016.  He was 2 and half years old.  It wasn't a simple diagnosis and took a long journey of medical appointments and various specialists.  However, after a genetic test called whole exome sequencing we finally had our definitive answer.

At first everything was numb and hopeless; then we found the Angelman community and specifically the Angelman Syndrome Foundation (ASF).  Resources, tools, support and experiences flood from the foundation and the Angelman syndrome community which were life changing and they brought hope back into our life.

Robby is now 7 and half years old.  He lights up life in such an incredibly unique way - he has the ability to touch lives around him with his laugh and his smile.  I'm so blessed to be his mother and be a part of the amazing angelman community.  

I wanted to find a way to give back and I saw something about the Windy City Angels team and how individuals had run marathons to help fundraise.  Now, I have never been a runner, in fact, if I was running something was chasing me!  However, Robby tackles hard tasks every single day so I wanted to tackle this task for him and all the other angels out there.  So please support each hard step of the way as I run 26.2 miles for Angelman Syndrome Awareness and for my Robby.
