Raquel Gebel is a gorgeous 12-year-old girl who was diagnosed with Wolfram syndrome in the fall of 2010 when she had already developed diabetes mellitus type 1 and optic nerve atrophy.
Even being so young, Raquel is already blind in one eye and legally blind in the other one. She also suffers with bladder issues, severe migraines and hearing loss.
Despite having the symptoms caused by Wolfram, the little Raquel enjoys learning how to play piano and she wants to start learning Karate this summer. She is a special girl!
Raquel also has a personal assistant to help her in her classes. She is currently learning Braille to help her in her day-to-day activities. Raquel is a sharp girl!
The WolframInside is so happy in following the story about this warrior of a girl.
