Lisa Hebert is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Brooklyn Garnier.
As many of you know Hadley doesn't have an easy medical history. It's time we help them out!
Hadley Garnier is the 6 year old daughter of Brooklyn (Rathgeber) and Travis (Hoss) Garnier. Hadley has dealt with a series of medical issues since birth. On her second birthday she had endured over 60 visits to emergency and had been hospitalized multiple times. Soon after her third birthday, her fifth specialist, an immunologist in Saskatoon, diagnosed Hadley with a rare food allergy, called FPIES. This resulted in Brooklyn taking a year off of work to provide Hadley with appropriate care. They were told Hadley could possibly outgrow her condition, and she spent a week in Regina where she took part in a food trial to identify her triggers. Over time, Hadley developed a tolerance and was thriving.
In 2015, Hadley's health was on a rapid climb and Hoss and Brooklyn had welcomed two more sons into their life. In December 2016, Hadley had what they thought was a "relapse." Hadley was hospitalized for what seemed to be the same old. However, it was suspected that she was having seizures. Hadley was again sent to a myriad of doctors for more tests, and on March 17th, they found out that the EEG scan showed abnormalities. Hadley immediately started treatment for seizures the following day. At this time, her treatment plan is a 3 year plan that will require multiple trips to Saskatoon, and scans every 3 months to ensure her medication is working.
Hadley has since been referred to a paediatric neurologist at the Children's Hospital in Saskatoon. As usual, Hadley shows atypical symptoms that are withholding her diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. She is awaiting an MRI, and a 96 hour EEG scan that will take place the first week of June in Saskatoon.
We would like to show our support by raising some funds to offset the medical expenses their family is facing. Time off of work, and constant travel and accommodations for their family has been a huge obstacle. Help ease some of the stress, and allow them to travel as a family, and turn some of this turmoil into family memories.
