Given the strength to overcome her own struggles, child sponsor Karis Feezell strives to help others overcome theirs.
Hello, my name is Karis Feezell. I am a determined, strong and compassionate 19-year-old artist who has struggled with physical issues all my life. I have cerebral palsy, Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, and birth defects in my hands and feet.
