Jazmine has a rare syndrom called Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome (KTS) .

Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome is a congenital vascular disorder of unknown cause.

KTS is characterized by hemangiomas (abnormal benign growths on the skin consisting of masses of blood vessels), arteriovenous abscesses, and varicose veins, usually on the limbs. The affected limbs may be enlarged and warmer than normal.

There is no cure for KTS. Treatment is symptomatic. Laser surgery can diminish or erase some skin lesions. Surgery may correct discrepancies in limb size, but orthopedic devices may be more appropriate. 

KTS is a progressive disorder, and complications may be life-threatening.

Jazmine had her first hospitilization at 2 weeks old with a near fatal blood infection. She has had 8 surgeries to date. Currently the family waits on the means to get Jazmine back to New York, where her surgeries are performed, for much needed medical attention. When Jazmine is in need of a maintenance surgery, she endures much pain and her mobility is affected leaving her on cruches or in a wheel chair.

Your help with this fundraising venture can help Jazmine have a somewhat normal childhood while waiting on a cure.

Many blessings to you.
