Home and Family

Terra lives with her mom and stepdad, Darshee and Derek Buist, her brother Anthony, and stepbrothers Xavier and Zayden.


Terra is diagnosed with Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy. Limb-Girdle muscular dystrophy isn’t one disease. It’s a group of disorders affecting voluntary muscles, mainly those around the hips and shoulders. Over time, muscle weakness and atrophy can lead to limited mobility and an inability to raise the arms above the shoulders.


Terra is in the third grade. Her favorite subject is P.E. because she likes to play tag.


Terra likes to play on the trampoline and with her younger brother, Xavier. She loves living in Wyoming but also likes to travel. She’s visited South Dakota, Nevada, California, Texas, Colorado, and Florida. Disneyland was her favorite place to visit. She loves living in Wyoming because it’s so beautiful. Terra loves animals and wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up. She has 3 dogs and 9 cats.
