Bryce Thomas Heckendorf, at age 6 and a half months, was diagnosed with Krabbe Disease, a rare and incurable genetic disorder that falls under the umbrella of leukodystrohpy. The average life expectancy of a child diagnosed with the early infantile form is 13 months, though with proactive care, many children are living up to 5 years. This fund will help Bryce's parents, Kyle and Jenna, two public school teachers in Dodgeville, WI, with the financial support needed to be proactive about Bryce's care. This will allow them to work with a functional medicine doctor and travel to Pittsburgh to meet with a doctor who specializes in Krabbe. We want them to have every resource at their fingertips without concerns about the price tag or related expense.

Please visit thebstrongfund.org for more information on Bryce's story.

Words cannot express the gratitude the Heckendorf and Kuenster families have to all you wonderful friends and family that have supported Bryce, Kyle and Jenna throughout this trying time. Please feel free to follow Bryce's story at www.thebstrongfund.org. Kyle, Jenna, Bryce and Jenna's mom travelled to Pittsburgh this week to meet with Krabbe specialist Dr. Maria Escolar. It has been a very informative trip and our little B-man has been a trooper! Aunt Jamie Martin (Kuenster) will keep everyone updated on Bryce's progress on thebstrongfund.com webpage.

Thank you Jamie, I see a few families on her that donated that were invited, but if it says Anonymous I can't tell. All I know is I hope that any amount donated helps in every way we can! God Bless little Bryce!

I am having my twins, Blaine and Brandon Springer's, birthday party on Sunday and have invited several kids. Instead of gifts, I've asked that anyone put forth a monetary donation to help your family out. Just wanted to let you know. God Bless and Happy New Year. We are praying for you all.
