The Sparks of Ember

We are starting this fundraiser to help with expenses to prepare for Emberlyns upcoming surgery on April 14th, 2020 at 9:30am. She will be getting surgical kneecap realignment due to luxating  patellas, a common condition for her syndrome she has. MRI will be at 8:30am that day, and then will go under anesthesia. Emberlyn was born weighing six pounds five ounces and nineteen inches long on August first, 2019 at 8:04am. Shortly after a few months of thriving issues she was diagnosed with Nail-Patella Syndrome, which is a rare genetic disorder that is usually apparent at birth or during early childhood. Affecting the nails, skeletal system, kidneys, and eyes, our focus at the moment is the skeletal features, her hypoplastic patellae and patella dislocation. The money raised in this fundraiser will go towards the equipmemt needed after the surgery and therapeutic items that will help make life easier for Emberlyn. Also to help with the costs of the trips we need to take for her Specialists she will be seeing during recovery, and also the overnight stays for us parents while we wait to be released after surgery. We currently are struggling to make ends meet as we are homeless right now and only having one of us working has been difficult. We've been fighting the state to push through to get genetic testing finally done so she can qualify to see her specialists, but we keep getting denied so we are trying our hardest to do what's best for our daughter at this moment in her life. This surgery means the world to us because it can give Emberlyn a chance to walk one day, and be pain free just like any other parent would want for their child. A simple dollar would help us start saving up for this nerve wracking day, prayers would mean so much to us as well as we ourselves pray for a speedy recovery.
