Family and community come together to help a local girl battling a dangerous neurological condition
Elouise Sloan, 12, sits in her wheelchair at a table at the Manor Country Club, smiling. People come up to her to banter, compliment her on her pink dress, or talk to her about her favorite artist, Bruno Mars.
She is happy and surrounded by family and neighbors.
Those family and neighbors are the ones who organized a golf and silent auction fundraising event to help fund research for the foundation her parents created: The Foundation to Fight H-ABC. In starting it, her parents hoped to find a cure for her progressive neurological condition H-ABC, hypomyelination with atrophy of basal ganglia and cerebellum.
