Hana Atlaw (Age 7)

This little girl is the youngest of her parents’ four daughters. Her family noticed that her back was twisting at age 3, and she clearly has a congenital deformity with several abnormally shaped vertebrae. She walks to her nursery school every day with her older sister. The family lives in a simple 2-room house with a couple of light bulbs but no water or toilet. While her family is able to manage food and rent, there is no money for the surgery Hana requires to correct her marked spinal deformities.
