Help Save Kaites Jaw
In 2002 Katie was born with cancer and beat it, But left her with all sorts of health issues one being she can't feel pain like you or I. She has now developed an odontogont keratocyst in her jaw bone; this has already deteriorated 1/3 of her jaw. On 2/6/14 she underwent her 2nd surgery of many to come. Sayward and Johnny have already exhausted all medical and dental benefits for this year. The surgery on 2/6/2014 cost the family $1900 out of pocket. The cost the remaining surgeries are unknown at this time, which would depend on the course of treatment. Eventually Katie will have to have some of her jaw reconstructed with bone that will be taken from her hip or both to compensate for the bone that has been lost due to the Cyst. This has left them in a financial hardship. Every surgery left (approximately 3 or 4) needs to be paid out of pocket as a family of 6. We are having a benefit show on March 23 at the boardwalk in Orangevale (detail will come very soon) But this page is for the people who want to help and can't make to the show. Any little bit will help her at this point. We are working hard on getting her in the Shriner hospital to help but it could take a while for that if they can even help at all. I want to thank you in advance for all your help!!!
Any money not used for Katie will be donated to the Shriner hospital!
I took Katie to the drs today and he said she looks great, things are going as planned. Thank you for ask of your help thru our families rough time. We are needing to raise as much as we can, add we have no idea what future surgeries will cost. I also spoke to shrinners today and they are unable to help, they do not have the correct drs to assists us. :( Katie it's very excited about both the benefit shows we have coming up in March. The car show is 2 days before her 12th birthday and she can't wait to hear some super great music at the boardwalk(she wouldn't miss it for the world)! Hope to see everyone at both events, and thanks again from the shoffstalls!
