Yogapalooza to raise money for Fort Bend girl with rare disorder

Anabel Edwards

Yoga on the Brazos, 936 FM 359, Richmond, will host this event Sunday, May 5, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., to honor Anabel Edwards, a 16-month old Pecan Grove girl who was diagnosed with Angelman’s Syndrome in March.

“Angels”, as they are called because of their angelic demeanor, have profound developmental delays, develop no functional speech and suffer from debilitating seizures.

The Edwards family has spent the last six weeks learning all they can about the syndrome and are working on a treatment road map. Rusty Edwards is a Houston police officer and together with his wife, Allison, have three other children. Anabel requires 2-4 therapy appointments every week and much of the cost is not covered by insurance.

Yogapalooza, will focus on the mind/body/spirit connection and will include yoga, meditation, healing energy work, henna tattoos, a silent auction and activities for the children. Admission is free.

In addition, Anthony Rodiquez with ARExpressions will be playing at Yogapalooza. He will donate 50% of all the proceeds from the purchase of his $7 CD to Angelman families until May 5. Visit his web site www.arexpressions.bandcamp.com .
