Fulfilling Joey's dream
Organized by: Jessica Dupin
Joey is 7 yrs old and lives with spastic cerebral palsy. We are raising funds to get him tendo lengthening surgery so he can walk properly. This surgery will stop the negative effects of his tight muscles in his hamstrings and Achilles. It will allow him to walk and move about with ease and less pain as he grows as well as be more independent as an adult. Money raised will be used directly for Joey, his needs and intense rehab that he will need afterwards to relearn how to walk. Monies will go towards his surgery (SPML) with dr Yngve in Gaveston at UTMB. Insurance has refused to pay. It's estimated at $15,800.
