Stories That Inspire – Romie

UHCCF Grant Hero Romie
Romie is an animal-loving little girl with a true zest for life.
She is passionate about so many things but some of her favorite activities include petting goats and sheep at petting zoos and her friend’s farm. She was diagnosed with apraxia of speech at age 3 which required frequent speech therapy to improve her words and sounds. Thanks to a UHCCF medical grant, Romie was able to continue going to speech therapy and is making outstanding progress! Now her hard work at therapy is paying off and she talks about becoming a veterinarian who cares for animals every day.
