HARTFORD – Newtown’s State Representative, Mitch Bolinsky participated in the 2019 National Organization for Rare Diseases (NORD) Advocacy Day at the Capitol last Thursday. After he welcomed attendees and pledged continued support for the treatment and research to conquer their rare diseases, Sandy Hook resident, Daniela Delgado, took the podium and captivated the crowd with her story of being a one of the 30-million people, half of whom are children, to have a rare disease and her amazing battle to help others.
“Daniela is an amazing young lady,” said Rep. Bolinsky. “Although just a sixth-grader, she has more than the courage to battle von Wildebrand Disease, a rare and serious bleeding disorder, and Ehlers Danlos Disease, that causes her joints to dislocate easily and triggers constant pain to her head, neck, shoulders, arms and legs. She has the drive to succeed in school and excel as a motivational speaker, spreading her special message of hope to others. She also is the founder and driving force behind ‘Daniela’s Little Wish’, a non-profit that ‘Bakes and delivers smiles around the world,’ providing free birthday cakes for kids with rare diseases and disabilities. You can find out more about her and her mission on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media sites.”
