Jace loved people. He loved to make everyone smile. He had a very bold one of a kind laugh that could make any person smile. He loved school and loved to learn. His hobbies included anything that kept his little fingers busy. Just a few months before he passed away he got to go New Hampshire to meet Jimmie Johnson (NASCAR driver) he loved to watch him!

Leart Dervishaj

Little Ferry, NJ

Leart is 7 years old and loves his PS4 and iPad (shocking!). He is in first grade and is the most caring thoughtful little boy I have ever met. His favorite color changes day to day from blue to green. Everyone that meets him falls in love with him instantly they say he’s like an old soul. He was diagnosed with SIOD when he was 2 years old. We felt relieved when he was diagnosed because for two years we had been searching for answers. We finally had a diagnosis!
