Fine China Hannah
Hannah has sustained over 152 bone fractures to date ranging from her arms and legs ribs and several spinal compression. She recently fell out of her bed that resulted in three major fractures this could have been prevented if she had the proper medical bed, Hannah's cared for and raised by single mother and due to her medical needs are in a serious financial strain.
Due to Hannah's fragile state she uses an electric wheelchair to get around because her bones are too brittle to bear her own weight repairs and upkeep and other medical procedures can become very costly the hope is to raise funds to help this great family with the means to cover some of these cost. thank you for your prayers Love and support God bless!
Hannah and her Mom continue on this difficult journey facing sometimes drastic decisions that we take for granted everyday (ie. do I pay this medical expense or pay the rent?). Half of their limited income is now gone as sad to say, Hannah's father recently passed away. Needless to state, this has put Hannah and her Mom in greater financial loss.
Please consider donating any amount as it ALL helps. You can always share this gofundme as well. Maybe you know of someone that can help. They are currently facing having to move, along with keeping up with the various medical and travel expenses.
On a side note, Hannah has done very well in school this past year, receiving certificates of honor in English, Spanish and Digital Art. This is great as she hopes to become a graphic designer one day.
Thanks for donating, sharing and caring. Please pass this on. We can all do that. Hannah and her Mom thanks all who have given already.
During her spinal surgery they placed 2 rods and 16 screws they also had to use cement to hold the screws in place due to her bones being so weak. A great amount of blood was loss. This surgery was quite intense and took almost 9 hours. Fears of Hannah going into respiratory distress and having a major fracture during the surgery abounded with each passing moment. The latter actually did happen Hannah suffered a right humerus fracture which is the upper arm, after months of splints and a bone growth stimulator it unfortunately never healed. The only correction to hopefully bring back function to that arm would be ANOTHER surgery.
On January 5, 2017 Hannah underwent surgery on her right humerus. The surgeons placed 1 rod, 2 plates and 6 screws to correct her arm. She is currently undergoing healing of this arm and let's hope a full recovery of function will be had. The aforementioned spinal fusion is healing and will be checked again very soon.
These surgeries, and ultimate follow ups, are all done out of state by doctors and surgeons who specialize in osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bones). Hannah is amongst the severest they have seen.
Please show Hannah that we care by making a donation to this Gofundme account and help relieve some of the great financial strain her loving mother is struggling to pay. Thank you and God bless.
But Hannah is not out of the woods she will be having spinal fusion surgery in the next couple of months due to severe scoliosis. Please keep this beautiful young lady in your prayers and we thank you for all your prayers and donations.
