Helping Children like Aydia

nemours-help-our-kids-radiothon-aydia-2012Aydia was born with a form of spina bifida. She had a “tethered” spinal cord that required immediate surgery. Her parents were told that she might never be able to walk, but with therapy, she did just that at age 2.

When Aydia was 8 years old, she kept getting sick and wasn’t growing properly. Her parents took her to duPont Hospital for Children where she had to have a feeding tube and additional surgery. Aydia’s conditions began to improve, and she gained 15 pounds and grew two inches taller. Now, a year later, she plays several sports and takes dance classes.

Although Aydia was still in the hospital during last year’s Help Our Kids Radiothon, she captured the hearts of listeners everywhere with her story. Today, Aydia is a vibrant and active young girl who shows no evidence that she was ever sick.


 100% of your gift goes to helping the children in our care.
