Surgery for Caleb

Caleb Rowse is a 12-year-old boy from O'Neill, Nebraska.  He was born with severe spina bifida and has been unable to walk or have feeling in his lower body since birth.  He has undergone multiple surgeries, most of them early in life, to address spina bifida-related complications.  Recently, his parents took a trip to the Shriners' Hospital in Minneapolis, MN, to get a diagnosis on whether or not anything could be done to possibly restore some nerve function and help Caleb be more mobile.  During his checkup, it was discovered that both of his hips are dislocated, and that extensive surgery would be needed on his knees and feet to give them any chance of working properly.  

Caleb has been through more in 12 years than most people will go through in a lifetime, and he has fought through all the difficulties he has faced with optimism and the help of his family's love.  Unfortunately, medical costs add up very quickly, especially for surgical procedures.  Your donations could help take a huge financial burden off of a family who has done, and will continue to do, everything in their power to ensure that Caleb is able to live the best life he can.
