  • Paid off the remaining balance of a car for the parents of a 12 year old girl who coxa vara.  She has had many hip surgeries, with the last one was for a very complicated orthopedic surgical procedure involving hip osteotomies.   Her recovery from her last surgery took a very rare and unexpected turn which was very painful and has left her non weight bearing and wheelchair bound.  Due to this, mom takes much time off from work for all medical appointments, PT and hospital stays and such and needed the car to get her to all the appointments.  As well, we bought a portable wheel chair to help with transportation.

  • Paid off $3000 in medical bills for a family whose 6 year old son was  diagnosed with Ependymoma Grade ll/lll Anaplastic brain tumor.   Due to the fact that he had complications from surgeries he will remain in the hospital for treatments and mom is with him in another state at the hospital while dad remains at home caring for 2 younger children, we have helped pay a portion of their medical bills to relieve some financial burden since mom and dad currently can not work.

  • Paid $3500 towards medical bills for a family with a 6 month old boy diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1.  This is a family has spent the last 6 months in and out of hospitals.  They have not been able to work and their bills were piling up.   We have assisted this family with a portion of their bills to make things a little easier for them.
