Gifts for Greyson

Thank you so much for reading Greysons story, This go fund me page has been created with love by Greysons family and friends with mom and dads permission of course, to help with expenses and alleviate financial burden so Tony and Krystle are able to focus on Greyson and his recovery.

Greyson's delivery into this world was traumatic. His diagnosis was hypoxic ischemic encophalopathy (lack of oxygen to the brain) and he was put on cooling therapy to try to minimize any damage that may have occurred. Fast forward to two years later, and Greyson was given the diagnosis of spastic diplegia cerebral palsy. Now at age 3, the spasticity (tone or tightness) in his legs continues to prevent Greyson from walking with ease. As his bones have grown, his muscles can't keep up and his legs have gotten tighter and tighter. Despite the multiple therapies and at home stretching, doctors felt that it was time to take action. Greyson will be having a procedure in January 2018 called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy in which a small incision is made in the back to allow access to the spinal chord where the neurosurgeon can find which nerves are triggering the tightness in his legs and to cut them. Greysons team of doctors (including his Neurologist, Neurosurgeon, Physical Medicine Doctor, Orthopedic Doctor and Physical Therapist) feel Greyson is a great candidate for this surgery given he used to walk independently and functions very highly for someone with his disability. After this surgery, there is about 3 weeks of inpatient rehab to re-teach Greyson how to use his legs without all the muscle tone. It will take time for him to recover and build strength.

Greysons loving parents tony and krystle -
“As parents, we want nothing more than our child to have every opportunity to live a 'normal' life. Although scary, we are very hopeful that this procedure is the right step we needed to take for Greyson. His resilience, determination, strength and courage continues to amaze us each day. We are so HOPEFUL that one day soon he will be able to walk again. We appreciate all of your care, concern, thoughts, prayers, and help along the way! We know it takes a village and we feel ours is the best!”
