Dancing Through Disability

Posted: Updated:

Decatur- When you meet Heaven Fromm, the first thing you see is her beaming smile.

Heaven, despite facing numerous ailments, including epilepsy and Spina Bifida, is your typical happy child. She loves listening to music, going to school, dancing, and riding rides. 

The positivity that radiates of this little girl is infectious. 

"Everyone that meets her always falls in love with her, she's just got that personality." Her mother, Mary Jo Fromm said. 

Make-A-Wish Foundation saw how special Heaven was, and sent her to Disney World to have a personal meet and greet with her favorite character, Minnie Mouse. She was thrilled for the chance to ride on the many rides there, and sit in the ocean for the very first time. 

Heaven also loves to dance. She is enrolled in a Wheelchair Ballet class, that allows her to learn ballet with her peers. It is something she looks forward to every week.  

Heaven will dance to just about anything, as long as Whitney Houston doesn't come on.

"She doesn't like Whitney Houston I will Always Love You. She Cries Every time. I don't know why" Her mother said
