As you know, Nate was born a year ago with bi-lateral clubfoot. His treatment started when he was 8 days old with a series of casts, followed by an Achilles tendon release in both feet, 3 months of full time braces, and now he wears his braces 14 hours of day. This is something Nate will continue to do until he is 5 and then from there we will work with his doctor to make sure that his clubfoot does not return. Even though our process so far has been short, we have been overwhelmed by all of the love and support we have received from our family, friends, Dr. Nichols and staff at Nemours/A.I. Dupont. We hope that Nate always feels this love and understands how fortunate he is to have the amazing care he receives. A charity called Miraclefeet increases access to proper treatment for children born with clubfoot in developing countries. For his birthday it is the hope that we can raise enough money ($250 helps one child) to treat one child so they have the same opportunities Nate will have -- to walk, run, play sports, and play with their friends. If you would like - in lieu of a gift please consider donating to Miraclefeet in Nate's honor. Help Nate with his cause to provide treatment to those children who are still living with untreated clubfoot.
