6 Years Old | Baton Rouge, LA
September 2020 was when we found out about Jade’s diagnosis.
INAD has completely changed Jade’s world. She was perfectly normal and met all milestones up until she made three. We noticed she would fall often and her speech started to regress. It took us years and many doctor visits to find a diagnosis. In September of 2020, we received a diagnosis and around that time Jade completely lost her ability to walk and stand without assistance from a gait trainer.
Riding her adaptive bike, popping bubbles, looking at books, throwing the ball, watching Mickey Mouse, playing with her sisters and enjoying the outdoors.

Whatever it takes! Quitting is not an option.
This is a very difficult and hard journey. It is our hope that in sharing our story we are able to raise awareness and find a cure.
We are a very active family. We love doing things outdoors together and try to get Jade outside and keep her as active as much as possible. Jade has two sisters who she loves and enjoys playing with so much. Although this journey is difficult, seeing the joy on Jade’s face adds a spark of life to our world.
