We are trying to raise money to get her a Bioness System, a type of brace that uses small electrodes to stimulate the muscles when she walks. The use of this system will even allow her to wear regular shoes, something she very much longs for. Our insurance has denied the request for a Bioness because she already has a brace even though it hurts her, won't help her create new neuro pathways in the long run, and only allows her to wear large hiking boot type shoes since it's so bulky. We are asking for help because we have tried everything else to get her this Bioness system. Both of my parents served in the army and my Dad works full time in order to provide for our family. We just cannot afford to get her this brace on our own, and we so desperately want to get this for our daughter/sister. She has been through so much and we just want to see one aspect of her life become a little bit easier.
