Izzy was born with a brain malformation. Her diagnoses:
Quadrapelegia Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Blepharospasm (eye fluttering), GERD (reflux), Severe Developmental Delay, Microcephaly (small head), Osteomalacia & Rickets (soft, fragile bones), Fanconi Syndrome and Renal Tubular Acidosis Type 2 (kidney problems).
Izzy can't talk, sit, crawl, walk, eat orally...... but she CAN feel, love, smile, laugh, and learn.
We are a family of 6. My dedicated husband stays home to watch her - she requires 24 hr care.
We are saving/raising money to go to The Family Hope Center in PA. They believe in helping children with disablities by going to the root of the problem - the BRAIN! THey don't believe in hiding the problem with medication. Izzy takes WAY TOO MUCH MEDICINE. Brains make new connections every day - they just need to be stimulated!! The Family Hope Center will evaluate her and come up with a comprehensive plan on how to help her. Then we bring her back 6-12 months to record the growth and re-evaluate her plan.
We appreciate your help, prayers, and love.
