Ellie-Jane smiling close-up
Living a dream by dancing

When other children were learning to stand, walk and run, Ellie-Jane could only crawl. At age 6, a dream came true when she danced in the Children’s Nutcracker ballet!

Taking big steps

Ariana was born facing an uphill battle due to multiple disabilities and medical conditions. Now each step toward independence is a reason to celebrate!

Hearing tests can be scary for a child with a disability who doesn't speak English, but not for Guadalupe. She has fun and feels at home at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.

The journey back to an active life

A spinal cord injury took Michelle's ability to walk. But it didn't take her determination to return to her active lifestyle and regain her independence.
