Raquel Fernandez Orthopedic Boots

We are doing a fundraiser for Raquel's stander, orthotic boots. Raquel is 2.5 yrs old but doesn't walk, cannot sit up or stand on her own. In addition, Raquel has low motor skills and isn't able to feed herself, or hold her bottle and isn't talking yet. Raquel has low muscle tone throughout and the doctors have not given us a diagnosis. Unfortunately, our insurance company doesn't cover the medical equipment she desperately needs. Although we are grateful for all we have, we have not been able to financially fund these extra items as medical expenses for Raquel have tapped us out. Thanks so much in advance. Much love always. Renata (Mom)

Ps: We were fighting to get her what she "immediately" needs which are the orthotics and stander. But the reality is: there are very expensive genetic testings being done that I will be use the additional funds towards. It will alleviate us immensely. The Genetic Specialists will be looking at different things. Here are some of the syndromes they will be mainly be looking for: Retts, Angelman, Pitt-Hopkins, Mowat-Wilson, CNTNAP2 & NRXN1. Thanks again for your generosity and kind gesture. ❤️
