Svea Raye's Feet

November 9th 2013 we were blessed to become the proud parents of a little girl we named Svea Raye. Svea was born with bilateral congenital talipes equinovarus, also known as clubfeet. This congenital deformity effects approximately 1 in every 1000 children born in the United States. We started treatment on Svea's feet and ankles when she was 11 days old. So far her treatments have yielded very little success. Her doctor acknowledged that at our first appointment casting may not work to treat her deformity as it was a severe case involving bone structures, especially her right foot. However, he insisted we try that route instead before going to more drastic measures. We plan to seek a second opinion at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Unfortunately, we are faced with the fact that the only route possible may be reconstructive surgeries so our daughter may be able to walk as normal as possible one day. With the many doctors visits, treatments, and surgeries we now face mounting medical bills as our insurance covers only a portion of orthopedics per year. Also there is not a pediatric orthopedic specialist in the general area that treats clubfeet, which means we must travel for appointments and take time off from work. Our only hope is that our daughter may grow up and have as normal function as she possibly can to walk, run, and play with other children. The last thing we want is her feet slowing her down. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
