Thanks everyone that donated out of the $2000 that was needed we are now in need of $1330 ... there is a wonderful organization called a Ride To Give who has helped Jordyn before and will donate $1000 if we receive the remaining $330 on our donation site. We have just one week before Jordyn is expected again for her second surgery. ... This appointment CAN'T be rescheduled ... so I'm getting very nervous we are so very close... After all the major hiccups and insurance issues we are so close to being ready to head south. I NEED everyone to not delete or keep scrolling, or discard but to donate whatever you can. I know you have been following her journey for quite sometime, but this is a 911 if we don't raise the rest of the funds she will lose her limb.. $330 is a lot of money but not if we all pitch in. Please help her on this journey and GOD BLESS you for doing so....

This is Jordyn's story and her journey started when she was born on November 12, 2012 with a rare congenital defect called Tibial Hemimelia. This is a birth defect where the Tibia Bone (shin) is missing, and her ankle joint and knee is malformed. When born with this condition the normal treatment is AMPUTATION. This condition is found in one out of a million babies. My mother was devastated because my aunt (her sister) has this same defect and both her legs was amputated at the age of 3. Sure enough after getting four opinions ALL the doctor's ALL said the same thing: THE TREATMENT FOR JORDYN'S CONDITION IS AMPUTATION! My mom prayed and with works (research) found one of the only doctor's in the country Dr. Paley at St. Mary's Hospital, who can perform recontructive surgery so that I'm able to save my leg and WALK!! MY FIRST SURGERY WAS ON OCTOBER 30, 2013 and I my second surgery is scheduled for March 2014 and I will still need to have series of surgeries over the course of a year and a half to help me to get to the point where I take my first steps. My corrective surgery includes a fixator which will straighten and lengthen my leg for 1 year in conjuction with physical theraphy daily at the Paley Institute in Florida and a body cast or the remaining 3 months. I'm BRAVE and STRONG and ready for the CHALLENGE. I'm asking for your prayers and support of DONATIONS to assist me and my family with the medical bills and Cobra insurance needed to pay for this costly procedure and travel expensives over the next 1.5 years from Michigan to Florida)as well as lodging 8/9 month stay in West Palm Beach, Florida, medical equipment. Over the next 1.5 years of my journey I also have to be prepared for any unforeseen expenses. Over the 1.5 years until I take my first steps, my mom is on a leave of absense from work with no pay, as she is a single parent and needs to be in order to care for me. Please stop by my page and check for updates on my progress!! www.thejordyndoakesfoundationinc.org
ANY SMALL AMOUNT CAN HAVE SUCH A HUGE IMPACT ON MY LIFE. EVERY CHILD DESERVES THE CHANCE TO KEEP THERE LEGS AND LIVE A NORMAL LIFE ... PLEASE DON'T LET MONEY KEEP ME FROM TAKING MY FIRST STEPS..... THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!! GOD BLESS .. LOVE YOU ALL...
