Brittle Bone Olivia's Disney Dream

11 Year old Olivia's bones are fragile like Cinderellas glass slipper and her dream is to travel with her amazing family including her mum Fiona who also has brittle bones to Disneyland, on a trip of a lifetime and every little girls dream. As Fiona's best friend I want to help make that happen and I know you do too! Olivia is a gorgeous little 11 year old girl who was born with a condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or more commonly known as Brittle Bone disease. She has spent much of her short life enduring many painful fractures, orthopaedic surgeries and long term regular treatment at Sydney Children’s Hospital (given intraveneously with medications to try and strengthen her bones). Although Olivia is 11 her condition has left her with a form of dwarfism and is only 99cm in height. Olivia is one of 3 children, her older sister is 13 and younger brother is 8 years of age. Olivia's family is not only unique in the fact that she has this condition, but her Mum also has osteogenesis imperfecta and has Her Dad is a paraplegic and is confined to a wheelchair. Despite Olivia’s parents both having significant physical disabilities, they are blessed with these 3 beautiful children, which are in themselves miracles. Despite her and her parents both with significant physical disabilities, they receive no financial government support. With costly out of pocket medical expenses endured with 3 members of the one family impacted by the effects of living with disability it gives little room for saving for a special family trip. Olivia’s, 2 siblings are very accepting of their family unit and never complain about the frequent hospital visits and times that they miss out on having some lengthy hospital stays. The impact on them is the harsh reality of chronic illness and or disability. If people are willing to support this very worthy family in making this trip a reality it would be greatly appreciated and they NEVER ask for help so its not a SMALL WORLD AFTER ALL!!! (Except for Olivia of course) hehe !
