Jackson (7) and Matthew (10) have a brittle bone disease.
Jackson fell while playing outside. He fractured his left femur for the second time this year. Both times the fracture was so bad that it required surgery to straighten out the bone and then a body cast to allow him to heal. He used to have a rod in his leg to prevent the bone from shifting out of place but a few years ago he broke his leg so badly that the doctors had to remove it. This current fracture the doctors were able to replace that rod and Allen and I praying that he can use this rod to stop having so many fractures. The money raised from this page goes to pay for his care. We were in Children’s Hospital for 4 days and will be in the cast for 6-8 weeks. After that he will have to go to rehab and learn how to walk again. In his short little life he has had over 50+ fractures.
We just found out that Matthew has a L3 vertebrate that is fractured. Not sure how he did it but a cat scan is eing performed on the 19th of July. He has had over 75+ fractures in his life tine. Like his brother he also has rods in his femurs.
They are awesome kids and live a normal life. They just have to be super careful around everything.The insurance only pays so much and my kids are NOT on medicaid so all the rest comes out of my pocket. We could really use the help.
