Savannah has a rare medical Condition called Osteogensis Imperfecta (OI) also known as brittle bone disease. OI occurs once in 15,000 births and is estimated to affect 25,000 to 50,000 people living in the United States. OI causes the bones to be weak and break easily; thus, requiring many trips to see specialists, surgeries, hospital stays and receiving medicine through infusions.
Savannah has been on the move lately learning to walk. On Thursday March 5, 2015, Savannah fell down, like any toddler does, and broke her femur. Unfortunatley, Savannah's bones will not heal like a typical toddlers should. Instead, she will be having surgery in Omaha, NE to place rods in both of her legs to help straighten and strengthen her bones. She will be required to stay in the hospital for at least a week and wear casts for 4 weeks.
This will be her third trip to Omaha within her short 14 months, and second trip in just two months. As you can imagine, medical bills and travel expenses are quickly adding up. Any assistance goes a long way in the continued effort to help Savannah.
