About Ilana

Ilana G. is the Disability News EditorHi, I’m Ilana and Disability News is my project aimed at improving the lives of all people who have incredible abilities, but are seen by their disabilities.

As a result of a surgical procedure at the age of 4 months old, I have cerebral palsy and go around in a wheelchair. It hasn’t stopped me from doing most things that others do. It just requires a little more effort and help from my family and  friends.

In this picture I am with my service dog Fred. I strive for independence. Between therapy and Fred I might reach my goal someday. I hope that you find Disability News articles informative and helpful. Feel free to post comments on the articles, and if you need to contact me, email me.

  4. Dear Ilana,
    It was so great to see you last week, where shopping is a Pleasure… I wanted to share with you that I am excited to share Inner ME Adventures and it’s benefits with children with special needs, I love to offer a program and do research on how it helps children so that others may integrate the program’s principles into their education, therapy, and life. It is all about activating and celebrating our Inner Focuser, Inner Healer, and Oneness. has more specific info, and I love to send you pictures if you want to post them to share with your viewers. :)
    Lots of love, looking forward to moving to the Bee Gees with you if you will dance with me…

    Hello Lani:

    I wanted to reach out to you regarding making donations to Art for Autistic Children or any other charity in Miami that supports the arts for disabled or autistic individuals. We are a new art gallery opening in November and would like to raise funds at every show for a good cause. Can you please point me in the right direction as to who I can speak with or what organizations are out there for us to support. We are passionate about the beauty of art on every level and would like to give back to the community as we showcase our expressions.

    I look forward to your response.

    Thank you,

    Monica Diaz
