THE STORY:

My name is Kimberly Thompson. I am 28 years old, married , with two beautiful children ( ages 2 and 3 years old). Unfortunately, I was born with a very chronic hip disorder called CHD. I was in a body cast and metal splints as an infant which helped for the time being. My orthrapedic doctor did mention that I would feel the worst of this disorder in my late 20s and early 30s. He was definitely right . For the last two years since I've had my kids I have experienced the worst pain in both hips causing me to be on bed rest or crutches. The pain is moving fast now reaching from my lower back through both hips and down to the bottoms of my feet. This horrible disease has taken over my life and now I can't even be the wife and mother that I am supposed to be. I need to be able to take care of my kids and unfortunately, I just physically cant. I can't afford insurance to go see a orthopedic specialist, consultation, MRI and open surgeries such as hip replacement surgery and do not have the income either. Recovery is from 3 to 6 months with physical therapy and bed rest. This also means that I would need to find a caretaker for me and my two children. I also can not work anymore due to my condition. I am in debt up to my ears in hospital bills and can't do anything about to help get out of it. All I want is to live a normal life again for my babies and just asking for help to get there. Prayers and support are much needed. I have been told that it needs to be now before I am permanently in a wheelchair and loose my legs. Please... I will accept any donations and I appreciate all the help to fight this disease
