Although the fundraiser was to help raise money, the main goal was to raise awareness for I cell.

it was the "size of the top of a pen."
"It was a night to remember," Said Christa. "To see how our Zumba family and the community came together. it was overwhelming to see the amount of support we received."
One type of breathing machine, known as a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, can cost in the range of $2,100 to $8,000.
"It is very stressful for a parent to see their child stop breathing throughout the night and during nap time," Pauline told The Compass. "It's a horrible experience having to shake your child so that she will breathe. There is this Nike Air Max 90 Womens Black Croc
Pauline explained that Amber is experiencing a form of sleep apnea. There is no respiratory specialist in the province or a pediatric sleep lab with the technology to determine Amber's needs.
The International Advocate for Glycoprotein Storage Diseases (ISMRD) vice president Jenny Noble told The Compass through email from her home country of New Zealand she believes there are only three children in Canada with ML (I, II/III and III), but it is possible there are more.
Dancing for Amber raises
Zumba instructors Amanda Thompson, Christa Clarke and Samantha Smith donated their time to lead the large group.
Amber's sleep issues have been affecting her quality of life, including being tired throughout the day.
It is so rare there are very few statistics available on the disease and there is no cure. Both parents must be a carrier of the gene for a child to be born with it. Neither of Amber's siblings have the Womens Nike Air Max 90
Some 150 people came to support Amber during the event, which included selling tickets on gift baskets, a Zumba dance event and to pick up purchased purple T shirts that read, "I'm dancing 4 Amber."

Pauline said she was unaware Amber had I cell until her birth and the nurses noticed she had some "different characteristics."
Purple is Amber Drover's favourite colour. The fundraiser helped raise $12,000 for Amber's future medical and travel expenses related to a rare genetic disease.
Amber, a six year old from Upper Island Cove, was born with Inclusion cell disease (I cell), also known as Mucolipidoses (ML) II. She is smaller than an average two year old. Amber may need a breathing machine and the cost to find out is not covered under the province's Medical Care Plan.
One major symptom is mucosal thickening that narrows the airway over time, which is why the breathing machine may be necessary for those with I cell. Amber's airway is narrow, and her mom Pauline was once told by an anesthesiologist that Nike Air Max 90 Pink And Green
"When Amanda and the other ladies revealed the cheque and I saw the number $12,000, the rest was a blur. I covered my hands over my face and I just kept saying to myself, 'That cannot be $12,000. Oh my God, that cheque says $12,000.'"
