Our Beneficiary

Genesis “Gigi” Marie Marrero


Meet our 2021 Beneficiary, Genesis! Gigi was born with a rare brain condition called Holoprosencephaly. Genesis’s mother, Lisa, describes Genesis as her “miracle baby”. Genesis’s condition manifests in a way similar to cerebral palsy, affecting her ability to talk and walk. Her entire life has been filled with doctor’s appointments, research studies, therapy, and IFSP/IEP meetings.

Despite her struggles, Genesis still loves going to school and works very hard. She is known to be an incredibly happy girl and enjoys being treated like everyone else. She does not like to be singled out as being different. She is very much aware of the fact that life presents challenges for her and she needs to go about things differently to achieve the same outcome as her classmates, but this has never stopped her from persevering.

We are so incredibly happy to announce Genesis as our 2021 beneficiary and cannot wait for her and her mother, Lisa, to be welcomed into our family with open arms!
