Danielle Murphy is a mildly autistic disabled adult.  She lived with her aunt, Nancy Vallone, in Arizona.  Nancy provided the best of care and medical treatment for Danielle. 

After Danielle was diagnosed with Fragile X Syndrome, Nancy moved to Ohio so Danielle could receive treatment from a top clinic in Cincinnati.  Shortly after the move, the Ohio's Advocacy and Protective Services Agency (APSI) took control of Danielle's case.  They placed Danielle in a group home where she has been physically and sexually abused. 

APSI denies Danielle the treatment that Nancy moved to Ohio to receive.  Worst of all, APSI isolates Danielle from receiving any visitors, including her Aunt Nancy.
