Our son Joseph was born with a rare disorder that happens only once in a million births. He was born with missing tibia bones and patella bilaterally. Despite all obstacles, we decided to fight to save our son’s legs instead of amputation. We have traveled to many hospitals, and visited many famous orthopedic doctors, however, all of them claimed that there was no choice other than to amputate our son's legs and to condemn him to prostheses for a lifetime. We refused to give up and began to fight for Joseph's bright future. We began to fight and hoped for a miracle to happen. This miracle has happened and is now within reach. The miracle can be realized with the help of an orthopedic doctor Dror Paley from West Palm Beach, Florida, who has offered to reconstruct Joseph’s legs, to give him a chance to walk. However, for the surgeries and rehabilitation required lots of money, which we don't have to cover the cost. But we are confident that there are plenty of compassionate, generous people in our community who would find it in their hearts to help Joseph to live a happy and productive life. We need your help for our son Joseph's medical needs. "A Chance To Walk, NFP" account and the website www.achancetowalk.org has been created for donations. On January 17th, Joseph will need to have surgery done on both legs by doctor Paley. Money needed to pay for travel expenses and staying in West Palm Beach for three weeks during Joseph's surgery and rehabilitation. We are appealing to those who cannot witness human misery and not give a helping hand! Your donation will change this boy’s life in the most amazing way! Let Joseph have a chance to a normal life. Let him have a childhood full of fun and first-hand experiences such as kicking a ball, jumping rope and running in the rain instead of observing life from the bounds of a wheelchair or crutches. Please donate today! Sincerely, Yanina Ziya
