Warm Hugs and Princess Meetups for Brooklynn

Brooklynn, with trisomy 2 and severe developmental delays, enjoyed some warm hugs and fantastic meetups with her favorite princesses on her dream trip to Disney World.

Thank you from Brooklynn’s Family

“Thank you for making Brooklynn’s dream everything and more than we could have ever imagined. Meeting Elsa and Ana was a big special moment for Brooklynn as those are her favorite princesses.”- Brooklynn’s mom

Brooklynn’s Diagnosis

Trisomy 2 mosaicism is a rare chromosome disorder characterized by having an extra copy of chromosome 2 in a proportion, but not all, of a person’s cells. The severity and specific symptoms present generally depend on the level of mosaicism (the proportion of cells affected) and the location or type of affected cells in the body. Trisomy 2 mosaicism is caused by a random error in cell division during early development of the embryo.
