Greenwich Mom, Pageant Winner, Special Needs Advocate
The Fearless Angel Project was established by Izabela O’Brien (Mrs. Connecticut America 2015 and Mrs. America Finalist 2015) and inspired by her oldest daughter, Alina O’Brien. Alina was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified (“PDD-NOS”) in 2007. Izabela and her husband Dan were fortunate to have the resources to provide their daughter with the educational opportunities, therapeutic and biomedical treatments necessary for Alina to live a happy and rewarding life. Izabela realized along this journey that there are thousands of families of children with autism and developmental disorders who struggle every day to pay for similar services. She also quickly noticed that the therapists, teachers, and physicians in this field were relentless in helping her daughter and called them Alina’s fearless angels. Her primary objective is to provide families with a place to turn when they are in need of support and autism resources for additional funding through scholarship awards in conjunction with fundraisers and generous donors.
On September 14 at Greenwich Country Club from 11-2 “TFAP” will be awarding families with an economic need with therapeutic and/or biomedical scholarships for their child diagnosed with a developmental disorder and/or autism. Support Izabela and countless others in their mission to help families who struggle emotionally and financially every day to pay for services such as swim therapy, ABA and biomedical treatments. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-fearless-angel-project-luncheon-tickets-26903178130
