Rally for Kally

Kally Lokken has a smile that lights up a room, a sense of humor that will have leave you in stitches, and endless love to share. She is a bright and charming young lady despite a lifetime of challenges. Kally was born June, 2006 with a condition called osteogenesis imperfecta , or OI. Many people have only heard of this condition in it’s more mild form, being described as brittle bones. The severity of Kally’s OI has resulted in hundreds of breaks over her young life. Her physical development has been affected which has limited her growth and ability to move and play, go to school, and explore her world like other children. Her positive attitude, despite the pain she lives with, is an inspiration.

 On July 17th, Kally took a little tumble. While this could easily be fixed by a quick hug in most children, it resulted in serious breaks in both of Kally’s legs. Her parents rushed her to Grand Itasca Hospital in Grand Rapids, Minnesota but they were unable to treat her. Kally’s OI doctors in Omaha, Nebraska sent a plane and a specialist team to pick Kally up and bring her to the Children’s Hospital in Omaha where she will undergo surgery.

 Kally’s mother, Kara, was able to fly with Kally and be there to support her. Her father, Justin, traveled by car to meet them there. Her Grandma D. and her sister Kaitlyn are also on their way to support Kally. Her younger brother, Kody, stayed behind with his Grandmother and Grandfather Lokken along with her older brother, Chanler.

 Kally’s struggle with OI has resulted in significant expenses that the family has dealt with over the years. The Lokkens will face many financial hardships as Kally receives treatment in Omaha, including the travel expenses, lodging, meals, and the loss of income for both parents as they support their daughter.

 Please help support this loving family and brave young lady! This Go Fund Me account will help defray the cost to Justin and Kara Lokken and allow them to focus on their daughter and her recovery.
