As many of you know, 7 years ago a beautiful little girl named Ella came into the world and Kimi's life. Ella has a rare, non-inherited, genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). PWS occurs in about 1 out of every 15,000 live births and affects all races and genders with equal frequency. The symptoms of PWS include, but are not limited to low muscle tone, intellectual disability, behavioral problems, a dramatically slow metabolism and most notably, the inability to feel full. Because of the insatiable hunger that occurs in people with PWS, they need to be supervised at all times which means they will never be able to live independently, unless a treatment is found.
As Ella has moved through her life, she has seen many challenges. One thing that always makes her smile, no matter how dark the day, are her dogs!She has seen first hand the emotional and physical benefits that Ella’s pups have provided her with over the years, and it has been so powerful! Through this, PAWS for PWS was born!
Throughout the next two weeks, Boogie Barks is donating 50% of all proceeds from each walk to the Foundaton for Prader-Willi Reaserach. I’m challenging you to take a photo with your pet, post and tag #pawsforpws and nominate your friends and family to do the same! Through social media it is my hope that we raise awareness and funds to help Ella and her friends living with this little known disorder.
We can’t wait to watch this journey take place and watch our community come together to help make a difference for Ella and the lives of all children living with PWS! So please, help spread the word and share this event so we can reach our goal and be the next “One Small Step” in being the change to help find a cure!! 🙏🏼🧡🎉🎉🐾
