Happy 2008 to all our favorite people!
We had a fantastic time last night, made some resolutions, set some goals, and are working toward a healthier 2008 for everyone. While some health issues are out of our control, we will continue to work toward a straighter back for Jackson this year and work on bringing Early Treatment to St. Louis Shriner's. We'd like to raise the $10,000 necessary to buy a pediatric AMIL table so that our local hospital can perform the necessary casting for other babies and toddlers with this condition. So, a lot of thoughts are swirling around right now about how we can do that.
If you have corporate connections, please consider asking them to make a donation to the Infantile Scoliois Outreach Program. We will do everything and anything within our power, but remember this is a non-profit organization, and donations are tax deductible!! Let's get a frame in St. Louis!!! Heather (the head of ISOP) has negotiated a $5,000 reduction in price for the frames (which put the baby's head and pelvis in traction and allow the surgeons to manipulate the spine back into a straight position) for our group. If we can get Dr. D here locally to start doing it, we will need a frame for his facility ASAP (and wouldn't it be fantastic to have one HERE?).
