The life of gorgeous:
Kaileigh Kooyman.  1989-2021
Smile - Life can be very short and can be very painful . 

Kaileigh at the age of 21 had needed 89 operations in her life and is only 21 years. Kaileigh had terminal illnesses, and her medical proposal from the doctors is to pay $2,500 per month for a drug that may or may not work.

Again, like many other disabled stories, she could not receive the most basic necessities of care and equipment upgrade (her crutches were nine years old and she had one leg)  in her life.

Kaileigh was in desperate need of a basic IT equipment computer or laptop as she had little way of communicating with society, in what was remaining of her life. As part of the Image Shift we had a new laptop and new crutches and equipment donated to her, which she promptly setup social media dating quicker than any of us had. And she promptly became engaged and moved out of home from that.

The 2011 fashion parade preparation and inclusion had alone given her an understanding of fun even within a lifelong traumatic existence. We also established a social support system for her. 

"Being beautiful can never hurt, but you have to have more. You have to sparkle, you have to be fun, you have to make your brain work if you have one"
