7 Year Old’s Letter to the President Re: Prader Willi Syndrome
A few months ago, 7 year old Jayden was faced with a new and daunting assignment is grade 2. He was told that the President’s position allows him to affect change that others cannot. His assignment was to write a letter to the President asking for help with a difficult issue. Here is what he wrote:
Dear President Obama,
As a leader of our country, you are able to make huge changes. One thing that I really think you should do is create awareness for Prader Willi Syndrome. PWS is what my sister Jada Skye has. Also many kids in the world have it. When they turn around age 2 they start to feel like they are never full. Some kids and adults with PWS are made fun of for being obese. They also have low muscle tone. My sister Jada has a tube in her belly because she is not strong enough right now. Please let the world know not to make fun of anybody. It is not good because you don’t know what that person goes though. It is not easy for them. I hope one day she doesn’t have PWS. I love my baby sister Jada Skye who has PWS.
Sometimes youth has an innocence that gets to the truth faster than experience. Jayden, wrote this before we entered our video into Michelle Obama’s video contest to fight childhood obesity. You can help Jayden get his letter into Michelle Obama’s hands, by voting for our PWS Awareness video at
Thank You Jayden.
