The Sioux City Musketeers, in partnership with Floyd Valley Healthcare (FVH), announced a new program this summer called Hot Shots. This program was created with the goal of honoring FVH pediatric patients with chronic health issues. We want to give children an opportunity to have fun with their family, cheer on the team and just enjoy being a kid again for a night. The 2018-2019 Hot Shots have been chosen and we are excited to introduce them!

Skylar Olson is a strong, courageous and happy X year old that has been diagnosed with a rare gene syndrome called Cornelia De Lange Syndrome (CdLS). Though Skylar has had a difficult health road, she is full of light and has a knack for making people smile. Mom says that Floyd Valley Healthcare speech therapist Alissa makes them feel so comfortable and the fact that she cares for her patients is evident. She knows that Skylar feels safe and happy when with Alissa. After some hard work, Skylar is beginning to say a few words and is able to communicate via sign language.
Although the exact number is unknown, CdLS likely affects 1 in 10,000 to 30,000 newborns according to the CdLS Foundation. This syndrome is characterized by slow growth before and after birth leading to health issues including short stature, intellectual disability and abnormalities of bones in the arms, hands, and fingers. Similar to autism, it can lead to behavior problems which can affect communication and social interaction. Depending on the severity of the disease and other coexisting health issues, most children with CdLS will live well into their adulthood.
Please join us in celebrating Skylar, our December Hot Shot!
