Solice is an amazing girl who fights every single day to be happy and smile. She was born premature and spent six weeks in the NICU. Her mom suspected she was having seizures while hospitalized, but the doctors said they didn't look like seizures. Then at three months old, she had an unmistakable seizure for ten minutes straight. Following MRIs, CTs, EEGs, and genetic testing, they discovered her condition.
Solice has two different extremely rare genetic conditions, Trisomy 5 and Cri-du-chat. She also suffers from a severe seizure disorder, Lennox Gastaut syndrome. She has had numerous tests and therapies over the years with many specialists, and she is unable to walk or crawl.
Solice has a visibly deep appreciation for music. Her mom is learning to play the violin, and Solice LOVES it! She also enjoys rocking, swinging, and playing with sensory toys — especially ones that involve lights and movement. She is a huge fan of Daniel Tiger, singing, going for walks, and laughing. She also loves avocados and eats them every day!
