Meet DSF Family Network Parent Ambassador, Mandee Call Ordaz

This #MemberMonday meet Midwest Region Parent Ambassador Mandee Call Ordaz! She joined #teamDSF as one of inaugural Parent Ambassadors in 2017 when we launched the DSF Family Network.

Mandee has a passion for uniting Dravet families in the Detroit area and is hosting a family gathering Saturday, March 16! If you’re interested view the Facebook event page here or email mandee@dravetfoundation.org.

Mandee and her husband have been raising their four handsome sons in the ‘burbs of Detroit for the past 14 yrs. Their youngest, Armando, was diagnosed with an SCN1A mutation at age two. Connecting personally with local Dravet families lifted a tremendous burden of isolation that was felt during the turbulent pre-diagnosis years and she is excited to help others do the same. Mandee earned a degree in Early Childhood Education from Brigham Young University which she uses every day to convert rowdy boys into gentlemen! She cherishes the poignant lessons Armando has taught her and especially enjoys learning about holistic healing modalities that have helped her family.
