Jonna Burgess, 6 years old, doesn’t let her physical disability take away from enjoying life

Rockaway Beach, NY- Life sometimes throws us curveballs and we have to be ready to handle them.  On July 11, 2012 twin brother and sister Derek and Jonna were born to parents Donna Cornett and John Burgess.

Jonna was diagnosed with Hirschsprung disease, and later developed cerebral palsy along with other health issues.

This little pride and joy have gone through so many things and at one point the doctors didn’t think she would make it.  But through love and prayer, strong parents and support system Jonna is living life although her life isn’t our normal it’s hers.

Jonna is a happy little girl that loves to feel the air blow in her face, smiles at the touch of the family cats when her brother Derek brings them to her.
