HUGE MILESTONE TODAY! JUST 30 DAYS!!! 30 days until we head to SeaTac to board our flight to FLORIDA! A quick (48 hr trip) to Florida to consult with Dr. Paley!
As of today, at this exact moment, EXACTLY $2,000 dollars has been raised for Victoria's Victories with Congenital Short femur! Monies will be used for our first consultation with Dr. Paley! $1,000 for the consultation and a current x-ray will be paid 'out of pocket', when we check in December 13 th at the Paley institute of advanced limb lengthening. We have our plane tickets in order, but still need to rent a car while we are there, pay for parking and a shuttle to and from the airport, as well as other traveling costs.
If Victoria's Victories with Congenital short femur FUNDRAISER were to raise $100 a day for the next 30 days, That would mean meeting our 1 st goal of $5,000! Any 'leftover' money raised will be saved in a Medical savings account for V for future trips to Florida.
ALSO, Victoria's limb length discrepancy gets larger every day that she grows. Her right leg is growing slower than her left leg. Without limb lengthening her right leg will never 'catch' up to her left leg in length. She will have an estimated 6 inch discrepancy between her right and left leg.
That makes another expense. We are in need of new QUALITY shoes for Victoria as well as a larger centimeter shoe lift. This urgent need is not covered by insurance yet. Luckily we know a shoe repair man at our local Bellis Fair mall that has been doing Victoria's lifts at a very affordable rate. Between the QUALITY expensive shoes we have to buy and the lift, her shoes end up costing about $60-$75 a pair.
We appreciate the ongoing prayers and donations! Every bit helps, no matter what 'size' the donation is!
Thank you so much! Feel free to share this status with your FB friend and family!
We also need prayers as we make the tough decision to switch medical insurance companies. Our current insurance does not cover 'out of state' care. There is ONE insurance company that is offered through Victoria's fathers employer, that would help cover surgical expences 'OUT OF STATE'. That insurance is one that Dr. P's office takes for surgical treatment of PFFD. We are still doing our research, but these upcoming surgeries will not be covered in full by either insurance company. Co-pays, travel expenses/accommodations, and preventative care items such as shoes and shoe lifts are ALL out of pocket expenses.
JUST 30 day's until our consultation with Dr. Dor Paley!
If Victoria's Victories with Congenital Short Femur/PFFD can raise $100 per day, each day, until Dec 11 th, we will have reached our FIRST goal of raising $5,000! Monies much needed.
