Elyana's story written by Nationwide Children's...
John and Cindy met with a doctor and were explained in detail the possible challenges Elyana could face. They left for China later that year to meet their baby girl for the first time.
A few years later, Elyana began facing challenges with her bowel and bladder control. She was a young kindergartner and her parents knew it was causing her stress and effecting her confidence. They decided to attend the Bowl and Bladder clinic where the nurses and clinicians taught Elyana self-care and began taking all the fear out of the unknowns.
Elyana’s physical therapist, Lisa, is just one of her therapists that has been truly touched by Elyana. Lisa said, “Elyana is one of the most determined and motivated students I have ever worked with. What makes her so special is her joyfulness and fabulous attitude. Elyana makes everyone around her happy. I learned so many life lessons from her and every time I saw her, she made me smile and count my blessings!”
Once you meet this little girl – you will understand how special she is. Those who participate in the Meaningful Miles Challenge in 2020, we know Elyana will provide you with the inspiration to keep going.

Did you know the purpose of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon is to raise funds to support life-saving research and care? Nationwide Children’s Hospital is committed to treating all children regardless of their family’s ability to pay, which cannot be achieved without community support and generosity.
