Child of the Month: December

Granden

Granden, like many of our children, is thriving due to UCP-OC’s Early Intervention. As the video says, Granden has Jeune Syndrome. Juene Syndrome affects the growth of long bones, your limbs and ribs, resulting with a dwarfism in the limbs. With daunting odds, there was a point in time his parents feared that they would not see Granden reach his second birthday. Granden is more than his disability, he is a joy to be around and brings entertainment to all that come in contact with him. Just as Geri Kate says in the video, he has a certain energy about him. Granden has stolen all of our hearts at UCP-OC and we have loved watching him grow and excel in his therapy sessions at our Life Without Limits Therapy Center.

This year Granden has celebrated his birthday, and is cruising towards his third birthday entertaining us along the way!

We thank you all for your support of UCP-OC throughout the years, and ask that you please remember us in your year-end giving this year. Every gift makes a difference, just $15 could cover the cost of art supplies for a child in our art class!
