About Nolan: “Nolan is a brilliant (& adorable!) three-year-old whose little body is affected by Transverse Myelitis (TM). At just 8 months old, a regular cold triggered the onset of TM, which paralyzed him from the neck & down. Nolan’s weakened systems makes him very susceptible to catching illnesses and becoming very sick, which almost always requires a hospital stay. Nolan spent the first two weeks of 2020 in the St. Vincent’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit battling bacterial pneumonia and RSV. One thing is for certain—he’s tough as nails! Fortunately, most of Nolan’s medical bills are covered by insurance, but he will have lifetime of specialized therapies & equipment ahead of him. 100% of money earned from this event will go to Nolan’s mother to offset the cost of equipment needed to make his life as regular as possible. We are hoping Nolan will be well enough to be at the studio to see the support and love he has from family, friends, and strangers in the community. Please spread the word to help this be as successful as possible!”
