Girl Fighting Rare Disorder Celebrates 15th Birthday

You can help make Hannah's birthday extra special by sending a card

Last week, Eyewitness News introduced you to Hannah, a girl with Trisomy 13.

Trisomy 13 is a rare chromosome disorder that causes severe intellectual disabilities and other serious health problems.

Monday is a big day for Hannah. It's her 15th birthday.

That's an impressive feat considering most babies with the disorder don't live past two weeks.

Hannah's mother, Michelle, is asking everyone to send her daughter birthday cards.

If you're interested in sending Hannah a birthday card, the non-profit organization Granted is accepting the cards on her behalf.

Send the cards to this address:

4445 Commerce St.
Suite 108
Evansville, IN 47710

The birthday cards will be given to Hannah at a party on Saturday.
