9 Year Old Raises Money For Her Own Disorder
News 10/ABC Albany
Through the sale of earrings she makes

Malina Woodbury suffers from Neurofibromatosis Type 1, a genetic disorder that impairs her ability to gain full range of motion in one of her legs. But the precocious little girl doesn’t want anyone else to have to deal with this disease in the future, so at the tender age of 9, she’s already working to find a cure. Malina creates earrings for sale and donates half of the proceeds to the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Not only has she raised over $1,800 in the first five months, she’s also helped brainstorm other ideas to raise awareness and funds for the disease.
