BENEFITING: MIRACLEFEET

Shawna Mollo

THE STORY:

Our Gorgeous Boy Maximus was born with bilateral clubfoot on both feet on 29th June 2014, he is soon 1! To treat his clubfeet the Ponseti Method was used & is used worldwide as the best treatment to prevent relapse. It started with a series of castings spanning 5 weeks, then surgery to lengthen his Achilles tendon, back into casts to heal, followed by a 3 month stint in a brace called “Boots n Bar”. He now wears his Boots n Bar for 14hrs a day (overnight) till he is 4 years old. You can relapse when you have clubfeet, but the best way to try & avoid it is to follow the Ponseti Method, however not everyone has the resources or funds to do this & over ONE MILLION children in developing countries are forced to live with the deformity because they don’t have access to the method, or they simply cannot afford it. To celebrate Max’s First Birthday, we would like to give back & help those less fortunate - because no child should have to live with clubfoot when it is so easily treatable. - Clubfoot is a leading cause of permanent disability in developing countries, yet many people have never heard of it. - Over one million children around the world currently live with the pain and stigma of untreated clubfoot, often subject to high rates of illiteracy, physical and sexual abuse, neglect and lifelong poverty. So rather than giving Max a pressie for his birthday, your presence is enough! & we would love for you to donate whatever you feel comfortable to Miraclefeet – a wonderful organisation based in North Carolina started by parents of clubfoot kids who felt compelled to do something as 80% of clubfoot babies born in developing countries have to live with the deformity. For only $250 we can change this for one child! THIS IS ALL IT TAKES for a child to be given the chance to walk, run whatever a child should be doing! So please join us in changing a child or childrens lives & donate today! For more information on Clubfoot or Miraclefeet please go to www.miraclefeet.org
