Sheyla is the newest child being sponsored by Carrie's Heart in the Yucatan. Sheyla lives with her parents and her brother and sister in Playa del Carmen. She is 11 years old and has cerebral palsy. She is nonverbal but very observant of all around her. Sheyla enjoys soft music, cartoons and car rides. Her family moved recently to Playa del Carmen from Felipe Carrillo Puerto (where we have 4 other sponsored children). Carlito's family has offered to help guide Sheyla's family in connecting them to local agencies that could provide Sheyla with needed therapies. Sheyla's needs also include adaptive equipment for the home (feeder chair, bath chair, wedges) and a stroller chair (Convaid type) for transportation. She would also benefit from stimulation activities for the home. Please consider making a monthly pledge or one time donation to Carrie's Heart during the Summer Sponsorship Drive for Sheyla or one of the other sponsored children in the Yucatan!
