Dudziak's School of Gymnastics hosts competition and fundraiser for nine year old with rare disease

On Easter Sunday, 2010, a nine-year old Bella Tucker of Londonderry, NH contracted a rare form of Streptococcus Pneumonia Sepsis with DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation).  After 5 days in a coma, amazingly she recovered only to then endure a quadruple amputation. Bella is a member of The Phantom Gymnastic Team and also a member of the gymnastic community from her home town of Londonderry NH. to Fairfield Me.

Dudziak's School of Gymnastics located in Biddeford ME will be hosting competition/fundraising event on February 27, 2011 for their friend, Bella.

The event is set to host over 150 gymnasts and these young humanitarians making a change.

This will be a defining moment in their lives. Bad things happen; it is how you persevere to make it right. These young people are doing just that.

Checks and donations can be made out to Dudziak’s School of Gymnastics;
