We’ve come a long way with Capability, Cesar has made great and exciting progress. He has been attending capability health since he got diagnosed with ASD at 2 years old. He will soon turn 5 years old, he has learned so much over the years and we are so grateful for His speech and Occupational therapists. The biggest impact for Cesar and family is he is now learning to communicate with not full but short sentences! When you hear them talking to you or saying something new for the first time it just makes you cry instantly of happiness!
Lydiah Owiti came to the U.S. from Kenya to join her husband. They had moved several times for his job in the military, in which they served for 12 years. When his California office closed during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, they moved to Maryland. However, soon after arriving here with their three children — a 10-year-old son, and daughters ages 9 and 3 — the Maryland office closed as well, and Lydiah’s husband was out of work.

My daughter, Karley Kaohekahewai Alani, is a thriving, beautiful 8-year-old. Her cancer journey
began three years ago when we found out at an ER visit that she had a mass. The mass turned out to be
ganglioneuroblastoma. She was also diagnosed with OMA’s or opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome. Karley
has been through several minor surgeries and one major surgery since her diagnosis. The question she
asks is “why her”. I have no words or answers to give her, but I do offer hope, faith and love. Our family
