This is the Anabelle Lissencephaly fund. The funds will be used for Anabelle's medical costs, related expenses not covered by insurance.

Anabelle was born with lissencephaly which means her brain never developed. She is now 17 months old and getting bigger. This means needing much more equipment and renovations to the home. Anabelle will never walk or talk or develop beyond a 3 month old. It was recently found by a neuro opthamologist that she is blind. She does seem to respond to music so it is assumed she hears. She is fed through a stomach tube, unable to empty her bladder and requires being catherized every 4 hour. She is on oxygen. She requires round' the clock medical care. She recieves physical therapy 2 times a week so her muscles do not atrophy. As her body grows, she is in need of more and more equipment. The equipment includes orthopedic appliances to be applied to her arms, legs, body to hold them in a normal position and prevent contractures in an abnormal position. As Anabelle grows, she will continually need these items replaced, along with additional needs of wheelchairs, handicap van, etc. The home is very small and barely has room for the things required to take care of Anabelle. The goverment is continually cutting providing costs to help children like Anabelle. But she deserves the best in life. I as her grandmother am seeking all to help her!
