While empowering and engaging with others, we exchange and share our experiences and information in hope of support and encouragement to others.
Hello, my name is D'Neeko Thompson (nickname: Neeko). I was born July 23, 2003 with a chromosome 13 abnormality. Despite the many surgeries and procedures I have endured, I still have a reason SMILE! I have my family that gives me love, hope, encouragement, and support which have allowed me to be independently mobile and involved in everyday life.
I love swimming, animals, movies and enjoy visiting the aquarium. I have a passion for music and dancing. Listening to music boost my morale and is a huge part of my personality.
I am currently 17 years old. I was recently honored and awarded as a 2018 Super Star. A special thanks to Carl Ducena and Tina Chandler of 'Normal To Be Fit' who were my sponsors.
