Jillian lives with her family (and two dogs) in Perrysburg, a small town in Northwest Ohio. She is in the eighth grade at a private school. Her favorite sport is volleyball, and she’s very good at it, along with swimming, which she learned to do in Florida before she could even walk.
Upon completion of this book, Jilly was diagnosed with Usher’s syndrome, which is the leading cause of deafness/blindness. Her journey is far from over, and I will continue documenting her awesome life for as long as I’m able.
