WEST CHARLESTON – Nov. 6, 2008, doctors gave Mariah Bowman a three percent chance of survival.
Mariah has Dermatomysitis. The Mayo Clinic defines the disease as an uncommon inflammatory disease marked by muscle weakness and a distinctive skin rash.
Mariah is throwing a dance for her family, friends, supporters, doctors and others at the Derby Elks Club Sept. 14 at 6 p.m. The party is free, but the Bowman family is holding a raffle with prizes valued at more than $3,000. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit Make-a-Wish Vermont.
For more about Mariah, read Wednesday's edition of The Newport Daily Express for Aug. 21, 2013.
