Bryleigh suffers from a rare chronic illness called Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE). This illness requires her to eliminate all food from her diet and rely solely on liquid formula for survival. Unfortunately, this expensive prescription formula is not covered by her insurance. Bryleigh will have a feeding port (called a PEG tube) surgically inserted in her abdomen this September, which will serve as her only avenue for nutrition. Local physicians have deferred her care to the specialists at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Center for Eosinophilic Disorders. Bryleigh will be required to travel to Cincinnati several times a year for follow up visits and additional testing. Hopefully the physicians there will discover a treatment regimen that will improve her quality of life.
Bryleigh has been through more testing and medical procedures than any average adult and she has handled it with grace and maturity beyond her years. Her family needs your support to defray the cost of providing her only source of nutrition, not to mention the tremendous cost of her medical care (estimated to be $100,00 yearly). Please donate today to help Bryleigh and her family procure the medical treatment she deserves and the nutrition she needs.
