Kristi's Hope

$7,300 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 118 people in 5 months
Kristi Ramos, 27 years old, has Down Syndrome and a rare disease called Keratoconus, a degenerative disease in which the cornea of her eyes thins and becomes conical. Without surgery called Corneal Crosslinking in both eyes, her vision can continue deteriorating and eventually can bring her blindness. For some reason, people with Down Syndrome are about 100 times more likely to have this ailment.

Kristi will be visiting Dr. Forseith, June 26th, he travels from Gunnison Colorado to Littleton Colorado to Corneal Consultants of Colorado. He will be evaluating Kristi to see if she is a good candidate for the surgery.

Kristi is also being considered for this procedure by Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler of the Boxer Wachler Vision Institute out of California. Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler has considerable experience working with special needs patients.

This procedure will bring hope that Kristi's condition can be improved. The procedure unfortunately is not covered by current insurance plans and will cost approximately $4000 per eye.

In order to help offset the cost, please join us and let's come together for this important cause.

Thanks to god and thanks to everyone that prayed for our Kristi. We had a small set back from the doctor in California. But with all your support and prayers, we got great news today from Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler. He has excepted and approved Kristi for both the procedure’s that she will need. He has also been approved from the FDA to move forward with the procedure for Kristi...Thanks to god!! She will have two procedures in each eye, the first will be Holcomb C3-R and the second procedure will be INTACS. She will also need exams,medication, and anesthesia. Kristi’s eye disease has been progressing very fast. So we need to move quickly to get her to California.
As you know we all have raised half of the money for the procedure. But unfortunately we need to raise more money. So we are planning to have 2 more fundraisers before she heads to California in September. Also the Go Fund Me Page is still open.
From our hearts to yours!! We so deeply appreciate you all!! God bless!
Kristi, Norma Rodriguez and Abraham Ramos
