2011 Cover Winner: Gabrielle Ioffredo
Gabrielle Ioffredo is a high spirited 9-year-old girl who just so happens to always be smiling. She loves cheering, dancing, singing, swimming or just playing with her brother, Noah, who is10 years old. Gabrielle loves to have a good time…no matter the circumstance. Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy, Gabrielle has been in leg braces for 9 years and has just recovered from hamstring lengthening surgery. As a result, she no longer needs her AFO orthotic braces. This gives Gabreille another step towards true independence. Gabrielle’s goal is to become a Dance Choreographer.
