Help Abi Run, Walk, Play



Abigail Grace is such a smart and active little five year old that was born with a rare disorder called "Fanconi Syndrome". But like any other kid her age she loves to run, dance, play and sing but everyday that passes by is such a struggle for her.  She is in pain all day because she wants to be as normal as can be. Being active is such a difficult task to do at her short age.  Even 3 1/2 hrs at Pre-K exhaust her.  Due to Fanconi Syndrome she developed "Rickets".  Rickets has severely taken its toll on her knees. As you can see on her X ray picture. Her pediatric orthopedic surgeon requested a trial surgery  to try to make her legs look normal and relieve  her from pain. Her kidneys are good now but whats more  important TODAY is to make her feel and look normal.  Abigail has no insurance but counts on the hospitals financial assistance but we are still liable to pay for 10% of surgery and dr visits; plus travel and lodging.   She is scheduled for surgery MAY 1st 2018 in Dallas, TX If you could support my granddaughters GoFundMe for medical and travel expences by making a donation I would greatly appreciate it. I know that money can be tight, so please know that even $1 helps me get closer to her goal! Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll be happy to answer them.   *Fanconi Syndrome: is a rare disorder of kidney tubule function that results in excess amounts of glucose, bicarbonate, phosphates (phosphorus salts), uric acid, potassium, and certain amino acids being excreted in the urine. *Rickets: a disease of children caused by vitamin D deficiency, characterized by imperfect calcification, softening, and distortion of the bones typically resulting in bow legs or knocking knees
