This is Jordyn's story and her journey started when she was born on November 12, 2012 with a rare congenital defect called Tibial Hemimelia. This is a birth defect where the Tibia Bone (shin) is missing, and her ankle joint and knee is malformed. When born with this condition we were told the normal treatment is AMPUTATION. This condition is found in one out of a million babies. My mother was devastated because my aunt (her sister) has this same defect and both her legs was amputated at the age of 3. Sure enough after getting four opinions ALL the doctor's ALL said the same thing: THE TREATMENT FOR JORDYN'S CONDITION IS AMPUTATION! My mom prayed and with works (research) found one of the only doctor's in the country Dr. Paley at St. Mary's Hospital, he has already  performed recontructive surgery so that I'm able to save my leg and work towards getting two feet on the ground.  My family is now preparing  for my next set of surgeries which will include  putting on an external fixator which will straighten and lengthen my leg for 1 year in conjuction with extensive  physical theraphy daily at the Paley Institute in Florida and a body cast or the remaining 2 months. I'm BRAVE and STRONG and ready to countinue my journey. I will also need to go through this process throughout my growing years and have continual doctors visits in Florida.  I'm asking for your prayers and support of DONATIONS to assist me and my family with the medical bills and Cobra insurance needed to pay for this costly procedure and travel expenses  from Michigan to Florid as well as  lodging 8/9 month stay in West Palm Beach, Florida, medical equipment. I also have to be prepared for any unforeseen hiccups. My mom is on a leave of absense from work with no pay, as she is a single parent and needs to be in order to care for me. Please stop by my page and check for updates on my progress!! www.thejordyndoakesfoundationinc.org

ANY SMALL AMOUNT CAN HAVE SUCH A HUGE IMPACT ON MY LIFE. EVERY CHILD DESERVES THE CHANCE TO KEEP THERE LEGS AND LIVE A NORMAL LIFE ... PLEASE DON'T LET MONEY KEEP ME FROM GETTING 2 FEET ON THE GROUND AND DANCING AND RUNNING WITH MY FRIENDS..... THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!! GOD BLESS .. LOVE YOU ALL...

With 2 days before her next phase in her journey she NEEDS your support. If you make a donation you will receive a customize pillow . God bless for your support
