Hi! My name is Susie Ivy. I am a 50 year old woman. I was diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or "brittle bone disease" many years ago. On June 10, 2014, I lost my balance and fell backwards and broke my knee cap. I didn't even land on my knee. Dr suggested surgery, but because my deductible has not been met, there was no way we could afford to have it done. On July 21, 2014, I fell again coming off of a step and landed directly on my knee. Unfortunately, I re broke my knee cap. This time more severe. Now I have no choice. Surgery has to be done.
Two years ago, my husband of 21 years had a stroke. He has not worked since that time and is on long term disability. He is struggling now with seizures, severe anxiety caused from the stroke.
We have 2 awesome kiddos. Sunni our daughter is 17 and Jake or son is 14. Jake also has Osteogenesis Imperfecta and is having a lot of health issues with his spine and thyroid. We are taking him to a Neurosurgeon, his Orthopedic doctor, and an Endocrinologist. We are in desperate need of help with all these doctor bills.
We are graciously asking for help. We don't like it, but we don't know what else to do. If you can help, any amount of donation will be greatly appreciated.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and may God richly bless you!
