Nadia will give you the hope you need

Nadia du Plooy’s journey began when she was diagnosed with Kearns-Sayre syndrome at the age of only two years.

According to her mother, Lize du Plooy, Nadia’s cells do not generate energy which makes them degenerating cells (in simple terms). Over the years, this has caused her daughter’s condition to worsen.

What sets her apart from most other her age is not only her strong faith, but the fact that she is unable to swim, run around or even walk, due to the rare neuromuscular and slowly progressive disorder she suffers from.

As part of Nadia’s message of hope and love of the entertainment world she started hosting talks almost all over Gauteng.
