Born With Treacher-Collins Syndrome

Isabella’s entry into the world was not met with the typical jubilation one might expect at the arrival of a newborn. Instead, it was shrouded in confusion and apprehension as Eliza realized something was amiss.

"As I looked around, I knew something was wrong. Nobody was congratulating me, and my mother and husband looked confused and scared. It was strangely silent and then the doctor left the room. I had no idea what was going on,” Eliza recalled. “I finally got to hold Isabella she looked different. But I fell in love with her instantly and knew everything was going to be okay.”

Isabella was born with Treacher-Collins syndrome, a genetic condition that presents profound challenges, particularly in the development of facial bones.
