Katie's Krew

THE STORY:

Our lives took their sharpest turn the day we learned our daughter would be born with Spina Bifida. The diagnosis was devastating. Katie had surgery shortly after birth to close the silver-dollar hole in her spine, and I remember holding her hand all through the first night of her life while begging for any help for the pain. I remember repeating over and over how proud I was of her that night. Ten days later, she had a shunt placed to drain fluid from her brain into her stomach cavity. We only made it through those difficult days because you carried us. It's hard to explain how the experience of having a kid with Spina Bifida has affected us in so many positive ways. Katie isn't just an inspiration; she's transformational, like many kids with disabilities. Unfortunately, in this current political climate, many kids like Katie and families like ours won't receive the tremendous support that we received. You have lifted us up to a place I never thought we'd be as a family, and we are committed to helping lift others. Now we're asking that you walk with us to help others, to donate to the association, to help Spina Bifida kids and families that struggle with the enormous burden of facing the hurdles of disabilities. The Spina Bifida Associationof Colorado is in a moment of transition, and now is the time to help build the organization and support the programs that benefit these incredible people. Spina Bifida comes at a high cost, estimated to be nearly $800,000 per infant affected by the condition. Please help by donating whatever small amount you can for prevention of the disease, and more importantly to us, prevention of the secondary side effects that come with disabilities as kids grow into adults, including depression, substance abuse, and education issues. It's more important than ever to build a community system of support. I can´t express how proud I am of Katie, and how proud I am of you for supporting Katie and this organization.
