Alexis’s Surgery

12 years ago we were blessed with a beautiful little girl. Alexis was born premature and she put up a fight and was able to come home. Little did we know her fight was just beginning. At 2 months old Alexis was paralyzed from her waist down and needed emergency surgery to remove an infection from her spine. After 3 surgeries and months of rehab she was walking and enjoying life. The time has come that another and hopefully final surgery is needed. A team of surgeons will remove the bone graft and replace it with rods and screws to prevent major issues when she grows and hopefully eliminate some of her pain.  Alexis has goals of playing sports and wearing a swim suit without worrying about a bump on her back and her kyphosis. Alexis has a scheduled surgery for October 18th, but our new insurance told us we have pay $2000 and that’s just for the stay at the hospital not including any other fees. We appreciate any help we can get. Please help us help Alexis. Thank you.
