About the campaign
After meeting with this doctor in October, they found out the severity of Ady's back and how life threatening it was on her lungs and heart. Something had to be done and in the doctors words “sooner rather than later.”
They prayed, discussed options with family, and felt that moving closer to this doctor and world renowned institute would be in the best interest for Ady.
Ady had bone strengthening transfusions immediately when they move to Florida, as well as a custom back brace created to support her hump back and scoliosis. This brace is only temporary until she has another round of bone strengthening medication/infusion right before her back surgery to ensure her bones will be able to tolerate rods and screws. She will then be undergoing back surgery to place rods to fix her severe scoliosis and kyphosis. They will be placing rods the entire length of her back. This will require a lengthy ICU stay and minimally 6 months of intensive therapy.
Once she has healed, he will then conquer each leg. Her left leg will have her hip put into place, bring her kneecap to the front of her knee joint, fix her club foot and tighten her ligaments. She will then have roughly 3 months of therapy for her left leg.
Once she is healed and strong, the doctors will operate on her right leg.
This intense process will roughly be 3-4 years of surgeries and therapy.
When the move occurred, Zac switched jobs and they had to start all over with a new insurance and new deductible to reach.
With that being said, bills have started to arrive and no funds to pay for them. Zach and Brittny strive to give Ady the best life possible and having multiple medical bills to make payments on adds an extra stressor to an already stressful situation.
