Alexandra’s Story

Watch Video

“We’re all better individuals for knowing people like Alexandra. Just seeing her smile, you immediately feel happy.”

When Matt and Nicole got married, they knew right away they wanted to have a family. They had a wonderful 40 weeks of pregnancy, and Alexandra came one day after her due date. It was the happiest moment of their lives, a beautiful girl entering the world—their world.

She was a beautiful baby girl, and parenthood seemed to be a typical experience.

But it wasn’t long before Matt and Nicole started noticing things about Alexandra’s development that weren’t quite right.

Around 6 or 7 months of age, Matt and Nicole had some concerns. They told their pediatrician Alexandra was not meeting some developmental milestones, and he recommended an early-intervention therapy organization in Phoenix. The therapists started working with Alexandra right away, but after a while it was clear she wasn’t progressing as quickly as her peers.

When test results came in, the medical specialists confirmed there was something wrong. Matt and Nicole marked that day, April 25th, as Alexandra’s diagnosis day.

The neurologist explained that she had Pitt-Hopkins Syndrome, a very rare genetic condition that affects intellectual and physical development. At the time, she was just the third person in Arizona to be diagnosed with this syndrome. Most of these children are non-verbal and many don’t walk.

“Knowing at that moment that she may never walk or talk… it’s devastating. It’s horrifying, and it’s scary… it’s horrible.”

As a parent, being able to see the world through your child’s eyes is everything. Though Matt and Nicole knew that Alexandra would have significant limitations—they were determined to give her everything they could of this world, enjoy it with her and see through her eyes by experiencing as much as possible with her.

They’ve chosen to take her out into the world every chance they have. Through her wheelchair, Alexandra has been able to find her mobility.

“We don’t stay at home. We choose to load her up, and we’re going to go to the park. We’re going to go to the splash pad. We’re going to go to the sporting events. We’re going to the theater.

“We’ve offered so many unique experiences for her to enjoy and learn from, and that’s the gift we can give her. We’re always going to open the world for her, so she gets to experience it and those around her get to experience her.”

They made a decision as a family to do everything they can to make Alexandra’s life a full one, a life filled with smiles and laughter and adventure.

The Leggero Reach is helping Alexandra’s parents get out into the world and create a rich life for their precious daughter. Being in a adaptive stroller doesn’t have to be a limitation, and Alexandra’s life and adventures in the Reach are proof of that.

“One of the things I love about the reach is that it allows her to be an active member of our community.”
