Ali is a work-at-home mom living in Richmond, VA, with her husband and our 3 boys – Cole (5), Dean (3.5), and Emmett (21 months). She is an editor and writer, and volunteers for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research.
Her son Dean, who will be 4 this year, was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome. Prader-Willi syndrome is a congenital (present from birth) disease. It affects many parts of the body. People with this condition are obese, have reduced muscle tone and mental ability, and have sex glands that produce little or no hormones.
Ali is a great example of a SpecialMom, let me share with you her interview.
