Chase was diagnosed at the age of 10 months with Progressive Infantile Scoliosis.The best treatment he can get is 4 hours away from us.

Chase has never had a point of life where he wasn't going to doctors or wasn't questioning something with him. After having a hard traumatic birth he ended up in NICU. It was there we found out he had a rare genetic metabolic disorder called galactosemia.When we brought him home from the NICU 8 days after birth. We just wanted to enjoy our new family of 7. Chase has 4 half siblings, But with him being 4 weeks early he developed Acid Reflex. Once everything calmed down and we went one with our new life as a family. We started seeing little things that wasn't normal for a baby. He had hard time feeding and then we noticed the head leaning.We started off with a diagnoses or toticalis a few weeks later we seen his ribs where dis formed. We went in to the doctors and just feeling his spine she could feel the curve. I began on a mad hunt for something to cure my baby boy to fix him with out surgery. With one brace behind us already for bracing isn't effective on progressive Infantile scoliosis. I searched and got us to Chicago Shriners. 4 hours away from home(on a good day). We are now looking at every 8 weeks making at least one trip maybe to 2 to get our son in a cast that can cure him. Shriners helps pay but not everything in travels. We wanted to do this on our own and not need help. But with the family size we have and I being a stay at home mom.Its getting the the point we realize we cant do this alone. Any money that is not spent on Family expense of travel or cast related. Will be donated back or Chicago Shriners.
