As she got older she began to have a lot of pain and at 9 she had another major surgery. While it helped with some of her pain for a while we have been struggling to figure out how to take some of this daily pain away.
Last September we began the process of re casting with hopes of relieving some of her pain and straightening her feet. 7 months later not much progress was made so we were referred to a doctor in the Orange County area who recommended our next steps.
It turns out Jacquelin had been getting casted incorrectly this whole time and while that is horrible and sad, it gives me hope for what results are possible for her when this is done correctly.
We are starting our journey in Orange County with casting in the beginning of November.
After 6-8 weeks of casting we are being sent to the best doctor in the world for complex cases like Jacquelin has. He is in St Luis and we will need to make multiple trips out and stay there for days and sometimes weeks.
Club foot in not a curable disease but if done correctly it is 100% treatable. Jacquelin has never been treated correctly.
We are now starting our efforts to raise money to get Jacquelin the care she needs.
This kid is a fighter, please consider helping us get her the best care we can.
