Diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy at age 19 months—Jessica took her last steps at three years old, but that didn’t keep her from drawing on the walls of her home. Recognizing her talent early on her family encouraged her as artistic talent and today—even as she loses her ability to draw—Jessica keeps finding ways to create. GROUNDED BY REALITY gives you a glimpse into Jessica’s everyday struggles and her fierce determination to be seen as a whole and vital person through her art making.
