Gabriella was only two weeks old when testing showed blockage of her biliary ducts and that most of the organs of her digestive system were “flipped’. She had to have a surgical bypass procedure to prevent liver damage. Unfortunately, a few years later, when tumors were found on her liver, Gabriella had to undergo a liver transplant. She remains on anti-rejection medication.
Early in her school life, Gabriella was homeschooled. She is now returning to public school and loves getting up early to get her day started. With all she’s been through, Gabriella has a strong sense of empathy for others who are ill or in pain. Mom considers her sweet daughter to be very resilient.
Gabriella loves watching cartoons like Tom and Jerry and Lilo and Stich. She is also a huge fan of America’s Got Talent and The Voice. What she particularly loves about The Voice is watching one of her favorite singers, Alicia Keys.
