Vanessa Vaughan is a work-at-home-mom of three children. It is the journey of her son, Braxton, that thrust her in to the special needs world as Braxton was undiagnosed for two years before finding a rare diagnosis of Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome. His older sister, Aileen, has been amazing with her little brother and has her own struggles with ADHD and Anxiety. Brooklyn is the youngest who joined the family in January 2017. Through Braxton’s diagnostic journey, Vanessa met a local non-profit, U.R. Our Hope, that specializes in helping families with Undiagnosed and Rare medical disorders and she now serves on their Board of Directors.
