Chism is my little friend who lives down our street, she loves to run and twirl and always gives me big hugs. When she grows up she wants to be a ballerina. Chism suffers from a form of rickets, which have resulted in her severely deformed legs. Rickets is caused because her mother did not have the proper pre-natal vitamins. This is very common in West Africa. What Chism lacks in her legs she makes up for in her smile and loving heart...she makes my day.
