My Daughter, Stella Marie was identified in utero with a long bone disorder. It wasn’t until after birth Stella was identified and I was informed my precious baby girl had a rare genetic condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, also known as brittle bone disease. There are approximately 50,000 individuals in the United States With OI. Stella had multiple micro fractures some which are believed to have occurred in utero all at different stages of healing. Four days prior to her first Birthday She obtained her first fracture requiring emergency surgery and one more to follow. I am asking for the help and support of my family and friends to help raise awareness for Stella and her OI family. We are working on multiple fundraisers to accumulate enough funds to attend the OI National Conference in Baltimore, Maryland in July 2018. Stella will receive consultations by the most renowned Physicians whom specialize in OI research and treatment. I am raising Stella as a 100% single Mother, and I was unable to return to work due to Stella’s needs to have my care a round the clock. All and any contributions are greatly appreciated from the bottom of my heart! There is one thing all individuals with OI have in common and that is an UNBREAKABLE spirit! Stell Marie is a tough little acorn and from little acorns grow big oak trees!
