2016 Speak Now For Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero: Victoria
At the young age of three, Victoria was diagnosed with severe asthma. Her parents remember feeling terrified when they watched their daughter struggle to breathe. After seeing a pulmonary specialist for some time at Dayton Children’s Hospital, Victoria was also diagnosed with chronic migraines.
Now 9-years-old, Victoria’s conditions are somewhat controlled; however, she continues to be monitored by four different specialists at Dayton Children’s. Although she has missed many school days, Victoria has cultivated a love of learning. Her favorite subjects are math, art and gym. She also loves to read, especially the Junie B. Jones series.
