Three-year-old Ever was born with Angelman syndrome, a rare genetic and neurological disorder that allows her to live on just hours of sleep each night. Nevertheless, loving parents Robin Audette and Kirk Hisko have adapted to their ever-cheerful daughter's unusual sleep habits and are grateful to finally have a diagnosis for Ever after years of exhausting research and doctor appointments.

Even though Angelman's syndrome presents many other nuanced challenges, the love this family shares is absolutely contagious!
