So my friends son Oliver (lives in Staten Island) has Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita. Rare joint condition, affects 1 in 3,000 people. It causes joints to be curved. It can affect some or all joints. Ollie is effected in his feet, hips, hands and wrists.
The picture of him in red stroller is current. He has clubfoot, hip dysplasia and hand and wrist deformities.
The reason for the fundraising help is because after his next round of casting and surgery starting in January, he will require a handicapped accessible vehicle, which costs about $2,600 per month to rent, for about 2 months = $5,200.
Shriner's Hospital in Philly is one of the only institutions close to us that deal with AMC. He will have to make weekly visits to this hospital starting January 4th for leg castings, surgery and physical therapy.
The picture of the boy in white cast in blue chair is what Ollies cast will look like after the round of surgeries in Jan, and will require him to always be in a wheelchair until he can walk (hopefully only 2 months). Ollie is my hero because he ALWAYS has a beautiful, genuine smile on his face... please help his family have peace of mind while traveling back and forth from Shriner's hospital in Philly!
Thank you all,
