Angie is a wife and mommy to three precious children, and in March of 2019 was diagnosed with multiple genetic and congenital disorders, including Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome, Nutcracker Syndrome, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (a form of dysautonomia).

Despite our best efforts, her condition has continued to progress and in December the entire family traveled to Ohio where she underwent major abdominal surgery to repair a dangerous arterial constriction that was causing her to slowly starve. She has had several surgeries over the years to combat the effects of her genetic disorder, she has been on TPN (liquid nutrition delivered straight into her bloodstream via a tube just above her heart), she's required IV fluid infusions at home and at the Urgent Care just to keep her heart rate and blood pressure out of the danger zone. 

Currently she is unable to walk more than a short distance or stand for more than a few minutes. This has prevented her from joining the family whenever they take walks, go on bike rides, go to the park, zoo, or library, or even go into the grocery store. It pains her (and the family) greatly when she has to sit in the car or stay home and be separated from the family. She is not able to move about outdoors, go down the driveway, enjoy our property, or anything that requires walking more than a short distance. 

Due to the pain, ligament damage, and joint instability caused by her Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a self-propelled wheelchair is out of the question. We considered a mobility scooter, but this will also not work for several reasons. The power chair must be able to move through grass and on gravel so she can go outside with the kids and enjoy the benefits of sunshine and fresh air. The chair needs to be lightweight and foldable so we can transport it without needing to make major modifications to our vehicle. With those criteria in mind, there are a few chairs we are considering. All of them are around the $2700-$3000 range. 

We are grateful that the Lord provided for over $100,000 of medical costs through our insurance last year. Unfortunately, this year we have an extremely high deductible and Tony's job has been outsourced, leaving him looking for work. This means that Angie will need to continue to be isolated at home unless this need is met through your generous giving. 

It is very difficult for us to ask for help, but we remember how much joy it has brought us whenever we've had opportunities to give in the past. If the Lord puts it on your heart to meet this need, our entire family would be so very grateful.
