Sebastian Scully, a lively seven year old from Valley Cottage, NY. Diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis, a rare chronic allergic reaction inflammatory disease that at this time has no cure and involves different methods of treatment to relieve the pain and symptoms, including specialized nutrients and medicactions. Despite all this, Sebastian doesnt complain and is a happy student at Valley Cottage Elementary. He wants to grow up and be a firefighter like his dad.
Four year old Elle Fishman from Piermont, NY. Elle was born with cerebellar hypoplasia, an underdeveloped cerebellum. This causes severe delays in developing speech, learning to walk, and balancing herself. At four, Elle can not yet talk or stand or walk on her own. She is a very smart, strong and brave girl who wants to be independent and just like her friends. She doesn't get discouraged and always tries to do the most that she can do.
