My Little Warrior Princess

The Warrior Princess Foundation - The Warrior Princess Foundation was founded by Michael and Chrissy Whitten after their precious daughter, Lilian Grace, earned her wings Thursday, August 5, 2010. She was born with T18, Edward’s Syndrome, on Sunday, April 25, 2010, and fought a daily battle for 103 days. Her parents realized the need and desire to help other families going through this similar journey due to the large costs and grueling daily battles this syndrome creates on a daily basis.  They wanted to create a way to help families, and so they began an annual fundraiser to help in that effort.

The foundation held it's second annual Trail Run fundraiser this past April 2012. They choose trisomy 18/13 children to recognize during the race. Rebekah was one of the these children honored both the first year of the run (2011), and the second year (2012).  We feel very blessed to receive an official Warrior Princess Medal which arrived for Christmas time.  Many thanks to the Whittens for honoring our trisomy children and for helping families in need! 
This is the medal that Rebekah received. The message reads,
"A small token/gift for your grace  & fighting spirit
through your true Trisomy Race. This medal is from the
2nd  Annual Warrior Princess Trail Run 10.3 miles, 10.3K &
Fun Run/Walk 1.03 miles races on April 25, 2012.
Love from Michael, Chrissy, Piper & Lilian (Angel)

Rebekah is totally thrilled at the honor of receiving an official Warrior Princess medal!
