Addie Martinka needs your support to get the best care possible- please help cover the medical expenses her insurance won't cover!

Adelaide Eileen was born April 17, 2012 after 36 hours of labor; what a blessing she is. A BIG blessing in a little body. Addie was diagnosed with Achondroplasia (the most common type of dwarfism) on 6/22 while at Hasboro Children's Hospital for an unrelated reason.

After multiple visits to the doctor, it was suggested that she go to the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital in Delaware to have a full evaluation and create a care plan for her.

We are currently trying to book an appointment with a holding deposit, and then we will have to pay cash for her care, as our health insurance is not accepted. An initial appointment with a geneticist and orthopedic specialist, with testing (imaging, blood work, etc.) is, hopefully, all we will need this year, and in subsequent years she will just need follow-up evaluations.

Thank you so much for helping Addie get the best care possible!
