About Amalie

When you meet Amalie, her superpowers are working on you before you even realise it. This sweet, cheeky, happy little girl has the irresistible ability to make anyone smile!

But she’s been battling bad guys for most of her life. Amalie has lissencephaly, meaning “smooth brain” – a rare malformation that results in a lack of folds and grooves in the brain. While it affects each child differently, for Amalie it means significant developmental delays, vision impairment, difficulties feeding and uncontrollable epilepsy.
