Ivanna's Story

From Ivanna's Family

Imagine that your four year old princess has to wear a “crown,” which in reality is a medical device that must stay attached to her skull for 15 hours a day. Ivanna has severe scoliosis, three missing ribs and a dislocated heart. Her red hair is covered with a halo she calls her “Corona de Princesa” – her Princess Crown.” Wearing it prepares her for the coming surgeries she will have at OIC, which will help her stand straighter and breathe easier as she grows.
