Austin's Story: Austin, a 25-year old husband and father of a 3-year old daughter, was diagnozed with Avascular Necrosis, a disease where the bone dies and collapses due to an interruption of the blood supply. He faces multiple surgeries over his lifetime. He has been out of work since late May when the pain became unbearable due to the bone deterioration in his hips. He has just had double hip replacement October 5, 2012. We are raising money to help Austin's young family pay their medical expenses and help them prepare for the future surgeries and accomodations they will face as there is no cure for this disease.
