Breana keep on Dancing

Hello all! As some of you might already know, we are raising money for our 11 year old daughters surgery and are here to share our story with you. First let me tell you a little bit about Breana. She is a bright, energetic girl who loves hanging out with her friends and talking on the phone. Her passion is dancing and wants to become a nurse when she grows up. She has been dancing since the age of 3 and starting competing at age 6. Breana was diagnosed with Scoliosis last November with a curve of 36 degrees. This required her to wear a brace for 16 hours a day. This summer Breana started to complain of back pain and at her follow up appointment we discovered that the brace did not work and her curve has increased to 58 degrees. She was then sent for MRI’s in hope that there was a benign tumor pushing on her spine. MRI results came in and we were told she needs to see an Orthopedic Surgeon for Scoliosis Surgery. After multiple opinions our only option was metal rods and screws. Our hearts dropped! We began researching anything and everything we could on scoliosis and found a new less invasive surgery called Anterior Scoliosis Correction (ASC). There are hundreds of success stories. The only issue is that since this has not yet been FDA approved, insurance will not pay and the surgery is $50,000 with $30,000 up front. This money will be used entirely for Breana’s surgery and if the goal is exceeded please know this money will be paid forward to help another child in need. If you could support my GoFundMe by making a donation and then sharing it with your network, I would greatly appreciate it. I know that money can be tight, so please know that even $5 helps me get closer to my goal! Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll be happy to answer them.
