Mariella had sustained a severe brain injury during birth from the lack of oxygen. The injury has left her non-verbal and severely physically disabled. With the mounting expenses for ongoing specialized treatments, Mariella’s family turned to the Spring Lake Toys Foundation. Paulette and her team were able to donate $5,000 and also through various social media campaigns, raised close to $10,000. Money that went a long way in helping to pay for continuing stem cell treatments and specialized therapy to increase Mariella’s strength, healing and overall recovery.
