Hope For Imogen
As some of you may be aware the Michell family has recently recieved some devastating news regarding the health of their youngest daughter Imogen.
2 year old Imogen has been diagnosed with an extremely rare genetic disorder Arterial Tortuosity Syndrome (ATS).
ATS is characterised by lengthening and twisting or distortion of arteries throughout the body. Due to the abnormal, excessive growth and the elasticity of the artery walls, the arteries twist, lengthen and narrow, thus causing the risk of strokes, heart attack and anurysm to be extremely elevated. It is clear that the majority of Imogens main arteries have been effected.
As ATS is so rare, little research has been carried out and most of her many doctors are still uncertain on the best options moving forward. As Imogen is unable to go on living with her arteries in this state, a heart reconstruction surgery in Brisbane and further overseas treatment is being considered to give Imogen a chance at the life she so truely deserves.
With such an unimaginable, unclear path ahead, many of us that have had the plessure of knowing each Thomas, Teleah, Gabrielle and little Imogen are wanting to help out wherever possible to make life just a little easier. I have started this fund in the hopes to come together as one and raise money for the Michells so their main focus can be put towards the tough little girl who has so unfairly been shown how tough life can be. Together we can Hope For Imogen.
