CHAMPION HIGH SCHOOL TEAM: Cedar Park High School FFA
Evelyn was born with mild breathing difficulties and no startle reflex. She had tubes put in at nine months old, after she had chronic ear infections. This caused her hearing, speech and motor skills to be delayed.
By age three, Evelyn was having increasing issues with her gastrointestinal health, respiratory and immune system health. Her eating and behavioral problems were also increasing. She was diagnosed with obesity, immunoglobulin G deficiency, gastroesophageal reflux disease and behavioral issues.
In 2005, the Wirth family moved to Austin from New Orleans. Evelyn’s new doctors also added autism, eating and sleeping disorders, epilepsy and asthma to her diagnoses. Evelyn has been under the care of five geneticists.
Evelyn’s favorite quote is “Come on, get happy!” This year, she’ll be joining the FFA program at her own school, Cedar Park High School
